Vegan Version of Sponge Cake


Spiced Victoria Sponge Cake


Victoria sponge cake is a classic English dessert that gets its name from Queen Victoria, who was known to enjoy a slice of the sponge cake with her afternoon tea. The traditional recipe for a Victoria sponge cake includes butter, sugar, eggs, and flour, and it is typically flavored with vanilla extract. However, there are many variations on the classic recipe, including this vegan spiced version that is infused with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
