Victoria Sponge Cakes are challenging! Sometimes they are small and uninviting and sometimes they are tall and luscious. So what makes the difference?
I followed Dan Lepard’s recipe exactly and the results are amazing:
º Beat, beat, beat the butter
º Beat, beat, beat in the sugar
º Beat in some of the flour next (only flour, no baking powder)
º Then beat in the eggs and remaining flour and baking powder
