Debbiedoo's Magazine Copy Cat Challenge: Victoria Sandwich




P1040492

The May issue of Country Living UK inspired this Copy Cat Challenge.



P1040491



I wanted to do something a bit different for this month's Copy Cat Challenge. In honor of Queen Elizabeth II and her Diamond Jubilee, I made a Victoria Sandwich.  A Victoria Sandwich is an English teatime treat favored by Queen Victoria.

I found three recipes, and I was not crazy about the first one I tried.  I am trying another one tomorrow, and if I like it better I will post it, promise!  We have been invited to a Diamond Jubilee party this weekend, and if I can perfect this recipe I will share a Victoria Sandwich at the party.

My layers are thinner because I do not have a real sandwich tin that is only 7" in diameter.  I want to find a recipe for an 8" cake pan.

A Victoria Sandwich is basically a sponge cake with jam between the layers.  I used strawberry jam in mine.


Are you sharing your latest copy cat with Debbie?

Until next time...

Blessings!

  9. Well it looks yummy. I hope you find a recipe that works for you - I'd like to give it a try too. I'm trying to think of something to cook for the Jubilee too - maybe Scotch Eggs.
