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