Victorian sponge cakes by Merissa

Posted by on May 13, 2014

2014-05-12 12.44.26This is how we make Victorian sponge cakes.

Step 1. Gather these ingredients: butter, self raising flour, jam, mixing spoon, eggs, oven gloves, cupcake holders as well as the bowl and that is most of it.

Step 2. Take the bowl and put inside the bowl the butter as well as the eggs then mix it together.

Step 3. Now take the self raising flour then mix. (It might come a bit sticky)

Step 4. Thirdly take the cupcake holders and now scrape the mixing bowl with the spoon to get it in the cupcake holders. (You might want to scrape all of the outside out to get most of it)

Step 5. Now put it in the oven then turn it to 180 degrees I think.

Step 6. After a while take the cupcakes out with the oven gloves, when they are done try to make the little wing things,

Step 7. Finally spread the jam in the middle of the two wings then now it is ready to eat.

 

I chose this recipe because we are learning about it and it was pretty easy as well as we can show how fun they are. Even Miss Helby liked it and now I am happy.

    A very fitting recipe for your topic at school.

    The earliest sponge cake recipe in England is found in the 1615 book of English poet and author Gervase Markham, The English Huswife, Containing the Inward and Outward Virtues Which Ought to Be in a Complete Woman.

    It then appeared again in the late 18th century!

    Great Merissa. A very fitting recipe for your topic at school.

    The first sponge cake was found written in a book as far back as 1615, but did not appear again until the late 18th century.

    It is still a popular cake to this day!
