When the great British bake off began again 7 weeks ago now (time flys…) I started doing one of the bakes from the show each week & putting my own spin on it for the #TwitterBakealong which I love participating in when I can, I highly recommend you do the same 😘
Cake week saw the Victoria sandwhich get a revamp with this tropical lemon & Pineapple version of mine. It’s basically the exact same recipe &method as a traditional Victoria sponge : 4oz butter & same caster sugar creamed together until light,then add 4 oz of self raising flour with 2 eggs until fully incorporated & bake at 180°c for 20-25 minutes.
When cold I sliced the cake in half and filled with the normal buttercream(4oz icing sugar mixed with 2 oz butter) after spreading each layer with lemon curd first and putting a handful of chopped pineapple in the center.
I have so many pictures of this bake to choose from but I won’t bore you with posting anymore … well maybe just one 😂
Ttfn sweeties 😘
Or two 😜
