Raspberry Victoria Sandwich Cake


This is a classic British cake but with the berry season in I had no choice but to bake this cake.
Serves 8
  • 150g butter at room temperature
  • 150g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 180g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons of raspberry jam
  • 140g fresh raspberries
  • 120ml whipping cream
  • icing sugar for dusting

Preheat oven at 180°C.

Mix the butter and sugar together until you get a smooth paste. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Pour in the flour and baking powder and mix until well combine.

You need two tins of the same diameters. Fill these two tin with the mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes until it is golden. Turn the cakes out on to a wire rack.

Before serving, use a spatula to spread the jam over one cake and top with the raspberries. Spread the whipping cream over the raspberries. Put the second cake on top and dust with icing sugar.

In case you don’t have a lot of time to prepare the cake , you use industrial whipping cream!
