Sponge cakes are great on their own or as a base for a fancy layer cake. Here you'll find chocolate sponge cakes, mango sponge cakes, lemon sponge cakes and classic sponge cakes.
After my first and only attempt, I have been thinking of making this cake again for the longest time. As I take feedback for all my food very seriously, I changed the previous sponge cake used to chiffon cake. The family prefer the lighter and airier cake when they indulge in this cake. Nothing too heavy, they say. I tried twice with another recipe but failed! :( But third time's the charm with another recipe!
Alas… When i threatened not to bake this ever again should i fail on this attempt, the cake got scared and gave me the colour i wanted it to be! Truth be told, this is not my 3rd attempt like i mentioned on my failed chiffon cake post. It’s my 4th!

A Victoria Sponge was the favourite sponge cake of Queen Victoria, and has since become a tried-and-true recipe for tea-time sponge cakes. Victoria Sponges are generally filled with jam, and are undecorated on the top, but you can serve each piece with a dollop of whipped cream, or shake some icing sugar over the top if you'd like.

This is a delicious fruity variation of the classic Italian dessert, tiramisu.
This cake always goes down well. It's so easy to remember - as it's equal measures of butter, sugar and flour. If you're in a hurry shove all the ingredients for the cake in a bowl and cream together before you bake it.
This sponge is perfect for afternoon tea. Use a good-quality jam or preserve that has a full, fruity flavour. For a Passionfruit Cream Sponge, see note below.
