Jubilee mini Victoria sponge cakes






Many of you know that 60 years since the coronation of Queen Elizabeth of England, for those who do not know I have much to do with England, my grandfather on my mother's side came from Southampton for many years met my grandmother (Spanish) and they were married, lived in Punta Arenas, until he died and came to Santiago. If you want to know more of this story you can see here where I made a tribute.
The Victoria sponge cake is usually a large cake  but

 I wanna make  littles to serve tea.

The Victoria sponge cake was named after Queen Victoria, who favoured a slice of the sponge cake with her afternoon tea. It is often referred to simply as sponge cake, though it contains additional fat. A typical Victoria sponge consists of raspberry jam and whipped double cream or vanilla cream. The jam and cream are sandwiched between two sponge cakes; the top of the cake is not iced or decorated apart from a dusting of icing sugar.

This post is especially to England, my grandfater who came  from so far  here away and my Mom:) !
Adapted from BBC Food



Ingredients

Sponge
225 g self raising flour
4  eggs
225 g caster sugar
200 g. margarine
vanilla extract

6 tbsp raspberry jam
whipped cream
icing sugar to dust

method

 Preheat the oven to 180°c.
Line an oven tray with greaseproof paper.
For the sponge, beat all he ingredients in a bowl until light and fluffy. Spread the mixture out into the oven tray flaen with a
palette knife and bake in the oven for 18 o 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
Carefully turn the sponge cake out onto a wire rack,peel off the paper and set  aside to cool.

Cut circles about 6 cm (I used a round cut cookie) from the sponge , spread someones with raspberry jam an others wih whipped cream, make little sandwich, dust icing sugar over the
top of each sandwich.

Mini cakes Victoria para el Jubileo






Seguro que muchos de ustedes saben o han escuchado acerca de que se cumplen 60 años de la Coronación de la Reina Isabel, por esto en Inglaterra se han hecho muchos homenajes y celebraciones e incluso en la cocina por supuesto, muchas recetas especiales para el Jubileo que se celebra esta semana.
Yo hago mi pequeño aporte con esta receta de mini cakes que es la versión pequeña del típico Sponge Victoria Cake, son ideales para el té o alguna celebración especial.
Para los que no lo saben mi historia de vida está entrelazada con Inglaterra y con España. Mi abuelo por el lado de mi mamá vino de Southampton, Inglaterra, hace muchos años y conoció a mi abuela española en Argentina, despues se vinieron a vivir en Punta Arenas.  Mi mamá nació en Punta Arenas pero cuando mi abuelo Maurice murió se vinieron a Santiago si quieren saber más conté la historia aquí en un post de scones.

  14. Those cakes look fit for a queen, Gloria! YUM! As you know, South Africa used to be a British colony and we have many people of British ancestry living here, so when there is a big event like this, there is always cause for a celebration! I want cake now, but because I haven't got any, I will have a cup of raspberry tea instead and think of you, my friend! Salud! :) ♥
