Miss Dahl’s Victoria Sponge

The Glasgow sunshine that shone so beautifully today heralded the start of this years picnicking in the park. And what no better way to kick it off than with a raspberry and orange victoria sponge cake. I can’t lay claim to this recipe as it belongs to the rather fabulous Miss Sophie Dahl (or should I say Mrs Cullum?). Aired as part of her cookery programme Miss Dahl’s Delights. I couldn’t resist the fruity charm of this fancy. The thick orangey sponge layers are topped with thick butter cream then sandwiched with homemade raspberry jam that oozes out everywhere. Whilst the masses flocked to Kelvingrove park with their BBQs and cheeky bevs I rocked up with my cake…

Before you judge, no I didn’t eat it all by myself I shared it with my sister.
