Victoria Sponge Cake

Victoria Sponge Cake


Sometimes, all you need is cake.



  • 3 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1.75 cups nut milk (your choice, any will do)


  • 1 cup dairy free butter
  • 1.5 cup powdered sugar

Middle & Top

  • Strawberry jam
  • Strawberries (halved)


  1. 1.

    Put all the cake ingredients in a food processor & whizz them up into a liquid.

  2. 2.

    Pour equal amounts of the mixture into well greased cake tins.

  3. 3.

    Bake the cakes at 180℃ (352℉) for 40 minutes.

  4. 4.

    Put the icing ingredients into a bowl & mix them together with a fork (if you have a hand blender, use that, it will make your icing come together perfectly!)

  5. 5.

    Put the icing in the fridge until it’s chilled.

  6. 6.

    Take the cake out of the oven & let it chill to room temperature.

  7. 7.

    Spread a layer of Jam on the top of one of the cakes & a layer of icing not the bottom of the other.

  8. 8.

    Sandwich the cakes together (don’t squeeze them though!)

  9. 9.

    Cover the cake with the rest of the icing - be as neat or as messy as you want - it’s your cake!

  10. 10.

    Decorate the cake with the strawberries.

  11. 11.

    Cut into slices & serve immediately with a cup of tea. BOSH!
