Victoria sponge cake

Method

For the sponge cake

  • Preheat the oven to 170ο C (340ο F) set to fan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the sugar, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 4-5 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the flour and keep beating at medium speed. 
  • Add the eggs one by one. Wait for each one to be incorporated before adding the next.
  • Add the milk. Add the rest of the flour and the baking powder into a bowl, and mix.
  • Transfer the flour to the mixer, add the vanilla extract, the lemon zest, salt, and beat for 10 seconds.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and mix with a silicone spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl and incorporate the flour.
  • Divide the batter among two buttered and floured cake pans, 20 cm each.
  • Bake them for 30-35 minutes. Remove and let the cakes cool.

To assemble

  • Cut one of the cakes’ surface with a knife to soak up the moisture of the jam.
  • Transfer the cake to your serving platter and spread the whole jam.
  • Beat the dairy-free heavy cream along with the icing sugar in the mixer, until it becomes a firm whipped cream. Transfer to a pastry bag.
  • Cover the cake with the whipped cream and place the second cake over it.
  • Dust with the icing sugar and serve with whipped cream and mint.
