Victoria Sponge is delicious – according to me (it’s one of my favourites). But they are even better if they are made by your grandma. In this post I am going to give you my review on my grandma’s Victoria Sponge, without giving away too many secrets.
My Grandma (Nana) always makes me a Victoria Sponge the day before I visit her. To me, they just seem to get better and better. The sponge ALWAYS has a beautiful light texture and when you have a piece of it, it seems to melt in the mouth (which is good!). She uses raspberry jam – she has experimented with other flavours for me, but they just don’t cut it!
(Don’t say this to anyone but I think Nana puts in a special ingredient. So special that even I don’t know what it is, even though I’ve had it so many times!)
Nana knows if I come to stay at her house for a bit, or she visits us, I will always get sad if she hasn’t made a Victoria sponge for me.
Overall, I would give it a score of 10/10. I’m sorry though, because you can’t have the recipe. That’s how secret it is…. 😉
