These mini Victoria sponge cakes are absolutely gorgeous! And so easy to make.


  1. Lightly grease a 12 hole silicone cake tray with straight sided 7 cm circles. Alternatively you can use fairy cake tins or the mixture will fill 12 cupcake moulds.

  2. Set oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4).

  3. Place the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth, creamy and light.

  4. Gradually beat in the egg until creamy, adding a little flour if the mixture begins to curdle. Fold in the flour. You can add a couple of table spoons to slacken the mixture if it's too thick to pour.

  5. Divide the mixture between the cake moulds and bake for 15-18 minutes until risen, golden and just form to the touch. Allow to cool completely.

  6. Slice each cake horizontally, cover one half with the whipped cream and top with a spoonful of jam, top with the other half of cake and dust with icing sugar.

    can you use granulated cane sugar instead of caster sugar?

    Yes. While caster sugar and granulated sugar are not exactly the same, they can be swapped 1:1 in baking recipes. Caster sugar is slightly finer and dissolves more easily, but in baking recipes if swapped with granulated sugar it is fine.
    Happy Baking!

    Can I know how much flour, salt and baking powder I should use if Im not using self raising flour
    If you are using plain flour, then you will need to add 2tsp baking powder per 150g of plain flour.
    Hope this helps,
    Happy Baking!

    I used fairy cupcake cases but they were a bit too small so they came out small and couldn't be halved but they still tasted wonderful ! Next time i'll use bigger cases
