Post Victoria Sponge
Sometimes, when the munchies strike, the only thing that will satisfy you is good old fashioned home baked Victoria Sponge cake, filled with jam and whipped cream (or butter icing).

I will do some extraordinary things when dropping hints that IT IS TIME JENNY got of her FA and made me one... like now.

Just so she has no excuses, here is the recipe:

Ingredients

* 200g caster sugar
* 200g softened butter
* 4 eggs , beaten
* 200g self-raising flour
* 1 tsp baking powder
* 2 tbsp milk

FOR THE FILLING

* 100g butter , softened
* 140g icing sugar , sifted
* drop vanilla extract (optional)
* 340g jar good-quality strawberry jam ( we used Tiptree Little Scarlet)
* icing sugar , to decorate


Method

1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Butter two 20cm sandwich tins and line with non-stick baking paper. In a large bowl, beat all the cake ingredients together until you have a smooth, soft batter.
2. Divide the mixture between the tins, smooth the surface with a spatula or the back of a spoon, then bake for about 20 mins until golden and the cake springs back when pressed. Turn onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely.
3. To make the filling, beat the butter until smooth and creamy, then gradually beat in icing sugar. Beat in vanilla extract if you're using it. Spread the butter cream over the bottom of one of the sponges, top it with jam and sandwich the second sponge on top. Dust with a little icing sugar before serving. Keep in an airtight container and eat within 2 days.

Probably because you are my bitch and therefore it is your honour and duty to make it for me.

So I'm sitting in the kitchen and my mother has gone to get icing sugar.

Le sigh.

The wife has gone to get the icing sugar, so the only tough titties around here on on your chest Jen.

Wonder if she'll get some beer whilst she's out?

The power of the braveboard is awsome.
