Wheat Gluten Free Victoria Sponge Cake

    35 minutes

    A very light moist cake, just like a normal Victoria sponge, but wheat and gluten free! Use margarine rather than butter as it is lighter.

    Serves: 8 

    • 150g margarine
    • 150g caster sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 drops vanilla extract
    • 150g wheat and gluten free self raising flour
    • 1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
    • 3 tablespoons milk

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
    2. Cream the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
    3. Fold in the flour and baking powder, beating well to combine.
    4. Add the milk. The mixture may be a bit sloppy, but that is fine, do not add more flour to dry it up! Turn the mixture into two lined sandwich tins.
    5. Bake until a skewer inserted near the centre comes out clean, about 15 minutes.
    6. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. To serve, sandwich the cakes together with raspberry jam and cream.

    Hi, i can see this seems to be a successful recipe, im looking to make this for a friends birthday, can you just give an idea of what size tins you use? im looking to do a rectangle cake.  -  18 Oct 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I have used this recipe two years in a row for my wifes birthday and both times it has been a great success. Once all ingredients are in bowl i like to whisk it all together for a bit longer than usual to get as much air as possible into it. I used asda free from self rasing flour and no baking powder along with lemon flavouring instead of vanilla this year and also used Betty Crocker chocolate buttercream icing for the topping this year and it was a great success  -  02 Jul 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    It might be obvious to most people, but a lot of baking powder contains gluten. It would be nice to add this as a warning when baking powder is listed as an ingredient. My poor Dad tried to bake me a cake especially but didn't realise that because of the baking powder he used I couldn't actually eat it!  -  12 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
