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

Method

  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.

    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
