The third of our family birthdays last week was graced with a cake that I've only been making for only a little over a year. It's a classic from our adopted home - Victoria Sponge. I use Delia's recipe, which is very simple, and always seems to work well. The layers seem thin before they're baked, but once put together they're lavish.
It's even better in the summer with fresh sliced strawberries and whipped cream. In this version, I'll add a spoonful of sugar and a few drops of vanilla to the cream.
