Dualit Product Recipe:

Traditional Victoria Sponge Cake

Serves 8

There is nothing nicer than the simplicity of a traditional Victoria Sponge cake.

This all-in-one method makes a perfectly light sponge for an indulgent afternoon tea - why not try a filling of whipped cream, blueberry and lemon zest for a contemporary twist.

The large bowl in the Dualit food processor will effortlessly take double the amount of ingredients to make an 8-egg sponge cake when larger quantities are required.
