    i have not made this yet, but am a little unsure about using a 9 inch round tin for such a small amount of cake ingredients, does it not make a very shallow sponge ?  -  06 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Altered ingredient amounts. My eggs were large, so I used classic Victoria Sponge proportions of 110g butter/ flour/ sugar, plus 1tsp baking powder. I also reduced the water for the coffee to 1 tablespoon.  -  25 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
