Tired of the same old Victoria sandwich? Try one of these variations to add some excitement back into your baking.
A few chopped rosemary or thyme leaves pair well with lemon or orange zest. Add them into your batter or buttercream for maximum flavour. You can even use them as an eye-catching garnish like we have here in our rustic naked Victoria sponge layer cake.
Try elderfower cordial, citrus juice or even liqueur for a boozy finish. This tangy and delicious passion fruit and lime Victoria sponge is a great example of how a little fruit can go a long way.
Allspice, ginger or cinnamon work well when added to a classic Victoria sponge cake recipe. Add about 2 tsp to the batter.
if you're looking to mix things up in a super simple way, try blackcurrant or cherry jam instead of strawberry. Or swap for lemon curd or marmalade. The pantry is your oyster!
Victoria sponge batter makes great cupcakes. Divide it between paper cases in a muffin tray and bake for 20-25 mins until golden and cooked through. Why not try out this simple recipe for vanilla cupcakes out for size while you're at it?
