Victoria Sandwich – The Easy Way

Yesterday i made a Victoria Sandwich…the Nigella way… Throw all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz. TA DA! Instant cake mix lol



I was a bit skeptical, but, in for a penny and all that. This was the result…



Looks good, yeah, definitely…and goes down very well with a nice cup of tea.


Nigella’s Victoria Sponge 

  • 220g self raising flour
  • 25g corn flour
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 225g very very soft butter
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs ( i used medium)
  • 2-4 tbsp full fat milk

Theres no real recipe here…just bung it all in a food processor (apart from the milk) and blitz until all mixed. Add the milk while the machines running until the batter is soft and of a dropping consistency.

Pour into 2 cake tins that have been buttered and bake at 180 for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and a skewer inserted comes out clean.

I filled mine with buttercream and strawberry jam.

But i have to say…I’ve had better…I’ve made better lol…i think i’ll stick to the food mixer or a wooden spoon 😉
