I was all set to make MacMan a wonderful rich chocolate birthday cake complete with ganache, until he said he'd rather have a regular sponge cake with home made plum jam in the middle. He didn't even want any buttercream filling, though did relent to having some icing sugar dusting on the top!!
There are lots of victoria sponge recipes, though to be honest they don't vary a huge amount. This month's Taste magazine conveniently had a nice sounding recipe, so I used that one as the magazine was to hand.
