Guest Post with What Olivia Did.

Ever since I started blogging 4 years ago, Vicki's blog was one of the first I ever read- I admired her awesome, perfectly coordinated yet experimental sense of style (but still keeping it ladylike) and it's safe to say it was love at first read (and still to this day is one of my go-to blogs). So, what better than to be guest posting for her, over one of the loveliest times as she's off getting married (Congrats again lady)! To celebrate I thought I'd upload one of the easiest, yummiest and most traditional cakes of them all (and aptly named, of course)- the Victoria sponge! This recipe consists of one whole step, and is so easy to make that if you fancy a fresh sponge as an afternoon treat (a slice that is)- it's totally doable! Anyway, without further a do...

You will need: 
225g softened butter
225g caster sugar
4 large eggs
225g self raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
Strawberry jam
Icing sugar to sprinkle
double cream for whipping (totally optional)!

1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees, and grease two sandwich tins with baking paper along the bottom. Add your butter, sugar, eggs, flour and baking powder into a bowl and mix until everything is combined!

2. Divide your mixture between the tins and bake for 25 minutes (or until a cocktail stick/knife comes out clean). Whilst waiting to cool, whip your cream for the filling- and once fully cooled sandwich the two cakes together applying jam and cream to one sandwich! 
Sprinkle with sugar and serve!
