Victoria Sponge with Blueberry Jam

The classic Victoria sponge has been given a modern update. Instead of strawberries I have added blueberry jam, which is both a delicious alternative and visually appealing.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

250g of flour
Tsp baking powder
100ml double cream
25g blueberry jam
3 eggs

Required Ingredients

Cream together the butter and sugar.

In a separate bowl add the baking powder to the flour.

Add the flour mix to the creamed butter and sugar.

Crack each egg into the bowl.

Whisk until a smooth cake-batter forms.

Pour the mixture into two baking paper lined cake tins.

Place the cake tins in the oven for 30 minutes at 180 degrees/gas mark 4.

After 30 minutes remove the tins from the oven, peel the baking tray paper from the sponges and leave to cool on a wire wrack (a cold grill will do).

Pour the cream into a bowl.

Whip the double cream for 2 minutes and you'll see it come 'together' and 'stick' to the whisk blades.

Using a knife, spread the whipped cream on to the bottom cake layer.

Turn the top layer of the cake over and spread with blueberry jam.

Carefully place the top layer on the bottom cake layer - don't worry if the cream appears to 'spill' out, it won't.

Dust the cake with a tsp of icing sugar for a professional finish.

I never know the tin size I'm afraid. Medium with about a 3cm depth?
It's always useful to say what size tins to use....

Sorry about the delay, THREE eggs are required for this sponge cake. Ideally free-range, or organic for a better rise.

Sorry again. I hope your bake is a good one.
There is no mention of eggs in the ingredient list yet you're method clearly says "Crack each egg into the bowl"
