Originally called a Victoria Sandwich, it was named after Queen Victoria because of her fondness for the cake at tea time. According to WI standards for the cake to be properly classified as a Victoria Sponge, you need to use raspberry jam, caster sugar for decorating, and no cream is allowed. Well, to the WI, I say this; I didn't have raspberry jam in the house, icing sugar is less gritty than caster sugar, and its for my grandpa's birthday, so I'm treating him to cream. WI, get stuffed. Now that that is cleared up, if you would like to try my recipe for Victoria Sponge, then feel free. Based on the brands I used, each slice is about 171 calories.
