Classic Victoria Sponge with an Eton Messy Middle


Rapeseed oil is perfect for baking. We love an all in one bowl make, and a bake with our oil makes the fluffiest and lightest bake! Our Classic Victoria Sponge has the perfect middle based on an Eton Mess. It really is the perfect occasion cake and we love it as part of an Afternoon Tea!


150g Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil

150g Self Raising Flour

150g Caster Sugar

3 large eggs

1 tsp Vanilla Essence

450ml Double Cream, whipped

A handful of fresh chopped strawberries

A handful of fresh blueberries

A handful of fresh raspberries

3 crushed meringue nests



Mix together all the sponge ingredients in a large mixing bowl. When all the ingredients are combined pour into 2 greased sponge tins and bake at 180C until cooked through (usually about 20/25 mins depending on your oven).

Once cooked allow to cool slightly and remove from tins.

For the filling, whip the cream and add the fruit and crushed meringue. You can also add crumbled white or bitter chocolate for a change. Wait until the sponge is cooled fully before adding the filling.

Dust the top with icing sugar to finish.

Suitable for vegetarians.
