Victoria Surprise Recipes

BEFORE USE:

Wash in hot soapy water, rinse and dry.

Strawberry and Blueberry Victoria Surprise.

We recommend an all-in-one sponge mix:


7in Victoria Surprise:

Line the centre of the bases with 5½in (14cm) discs of greaseproof paper. Butter and flour the tins and bases.

Mix together two large eggs, 1 tsp baking powder, 4 drops of vanilla essence, 4oz (110g) each of caster sugar, butter, and self-raising flour. Spread the mix evenly across the pan. Bake at 180°C for 20 to 25 minutes until well risen and golden brown.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes before turning out.

For the filling, spread creme fraiche into both sponges, then over-fill one half with fresh strawberries and blueberries. Flip the other sponge over and onto the filled half and gently but firmly press them together. Ice with melted chocolate and chill before serving.

AFTER USE: HAND WASH ONLY - NOT SUITABLE FOR DISHWASHERS

Non-crossed Hot Cross Buns Loaf
Non-crossed Hot Cross Buns Loaf

I know! This is a confusing name for a bake but it is truly a loaf made of hot cross buns without the traditional cross on the top as last time I made these crosses with a mixture of water and flour they were almost un-chewable 🤭 so didn’t want to risk it this time.

This is a perfect loaf for breakfast, if you’d like a bun just tear one of them from the loaf and in case you’d like a toast just get a slice of it and get it toasted with butter and jam, however I tried...
