This style 'Victoria sponge' is a blast to the past of the much loved English favourite, although called a sponge, it is actually made of a denser style pound cake.
I just made this sponge but mine has not risen very much and had bubbles on the top what did i do wrong please. - 15 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

I used this recipe for an entry for my local Horticultural Society Annual Show at the weekend. I dusted it with caster sugar instead of icing sugar and filled it with a good quality raspberry jam (as per WI standards). Pleasingly I attained a FIRST place for it, so thank you very much for this lovely recipe. This week I am going to make another one to fill with homemade blueberry jam. - 20 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
