Double Chocolate Victoria Sponge

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

I applied this method to his recipe for Double Chocolate Victoria Sponge. And I filled and iced with Whipped Chocolate Custard CreamAbsolutely yummy – thank you Dan Lepard!
