This is my Victoria sponge which is the first proper cake that I have made for at least ten years, the last being a Chocolate Espresso cake which had such a huge crater that there was nowhere to place the birthday candles! There is such a feelgood factor to making your own cake. Queen Victoria may have eaten hers with just jam, but the Jones family has a thick layer of buttercream with their jam... yum, yum.
The recipe is, of course, Nigella's from How to be a Domestic Goddess.
Oh, and needless to say, the whole cake had disappeared three days later.
