This is a sponsored post for Stash Tea. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
I love a good cake. But the calories must be worth it these days, as I am on a diet (the story of my life). I am a “Brit” as they say. But I’m half British and half Greek and while I do like some of the British food, I tend to lean on enjoying Greek food more.
So, when I find something that is British that I love, like a Victoria Sponge Cake, I must share it. I feel like I would be doing my readers a disservice by not sharing it.
The Victoria Sponge was the favorite sponge cake of Queen Victoria, and has become a famous British tea-time sponge cake. Victoria Sponges are usually filled with jam, and fresh whipped cream. It can be decorated on the top with some confectioners’ sugar or regular sugar.
This is my mother’s recipe, which came from my Aunt Rita who, by the way is the first one from the family to come to the U.S. It calls for one large round cake pan; however, you can use two instead of cutting cake in half.
I used three mini Spring Form cake pans in which case I would lessen the time cooking to 22 minutes and not 25. I cut them in half to make 3 mini cakes.
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 Tsp Baking Powder
- Butter (piece that is size of an egg)
- 1/2 Cup of hot milk
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
- Heavy Whipping Cream - for filling
- Preheat Oven 325
- Beat 2 eggs with sugar
- Add sifted flour with baking powder
- Melt the butter in hot milk and add vanilla essence
- Pour it into cake mixture
- Bake 325
- Let it cool then cut it in half.
- Add whipped cream and/or jam for filling
If you’re having afternoon tea, Victoria Sponge Cake must be served with tea. My mother taught me how to brew British tea properly and would never allow me to boil water in the microwave, so when I had the chance to try Stash Tea Earl Grey Single-Cup Tea for Keurig K-Cup Brewers, I was reluctant. This is a big “no no” for a Brit. But I figured I could at least give it an honest try.
I am so glad I did because I was totally impressed! If you were to do a taste test and use a tea bag in one cup and the Stash Tea in another, you wouldn’t know the difference! I PROMISE!
