My Friend : I like chocolate cake the most
Me : Tell me some other cake
My Friend : Red Velvet Cake
Me : Hmm, something else, Red Velvet cake is so common these days..
My Friend : I have told you the cakes which I like the most
Me : Hehe, I am looking for any new cake for me to try baking, Suggest something different or unique
My Friend : How about Victoria Sponge Cake?
Me : That sounds new to me, by the way what is it?
My Friend : It is a kind of sponge cake..
Me : Hmm... Sponge Cake.. Sponge Cakes usually have emulsifier in it, which is not good for health..
My Friend : Is it?
Me : Yes...
A few months later...
I was planning to visit my dear friend Diya to see her new born baby boy and, I wanted to bake a cake for them. And this time I didn't want to make something which I have baked before...
After all the recipe search through internet and books, I finally landed on a page which read "Victoria Sponge Cake". The name definitely sounded interesting and familiar this time. And yes, it is not the conventional egg white sponge cake or emulsifier sponge cake. The method was different and new to me. Here goes the recipe for the yummy Victoria Sponge Cake.
- Superfine castor sugar - 175gm
- Self-raising flour - 175gm
- Butter - 175gm
- Egg - 180gm (large 3 eggs)
- Vanilla paste - 1tbs
