My classic Victoria Sponge is filled with a delicious dairy free buttercream and jam. It’s the perfect tea time treat which everyone will love, you’d never know it was gluten and dairy free! The recipe is so easy to make and it’s definitely one of my favourites! For the sponge you will simply need gluten free self raising flour, dairy free butter (The Stork ‘perfect for baking’ gold packet works best), caster sugar, eggs, baking powder and Xanthan gum. To make the buttercream you will need dairy free butter and icing sugar, it may not seem like it’s coming together to start with but trust me it will!
To make my Victoria sponge you will also need 2 standard 20cm loose bottom cake tins, click here to purchase. If you do make this cake I’d love to see, don’t forget to tag me over on social media.
8oz dairy free butter (I use the Stork 'Perfect for Baking' butter)
For the filling
150gdairy free butter(I use the Stork 'Perfect for Baking' butter)
A handfuloffresh raspberries
Pre heat your oven to 180°C and grease and line 2 20cm round cake tins.
Add your sponge ingredients (8oz caster sugar, 8oz self raising flour, 8oz dairy free butter, 4 eggs, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp xanthan gum) to a large mixing bowl and beat well with an electric whisk until fully incorporated.
Divide the mixture between the 2 cake tins, level with a knife and bake in the oven for around 20 minutes or until the cakes are golden brown and an inserted knife comes out clean.
Leave the cakes to cool. Once cool make the buttercream by combining 150g dairy free butter with 300g icing sugar in a large bowl using an electric whisk. The buttercream will take a little while to come together so keep mixing!
Spread one of your cakes with the buttercream and the other with jam and sandwich together. Top with a sprinkle of icing sugar and fresh raspberries. Enjoy!
