Victoria Sponge Cake | Spring Collab with EmilyRose

Victoria sponge cake recipe

After chatting on Twitter, me and Emily from decided to team up together and bring you a collab, we are both very excited as it's our first. We came up with the subject
of spring baking, Emily has decided to make some Scones. Where on the other hand I've gone for a classic victoria sponge with a filling of raspberries and cream - in my opinion the raspberries make it more healthier!

The recipe is below incase any of you want to have a go! Also make sure you go and checkout her blog, as it's lovely and leave her some nice comments! 

4 eggs
225g Caster Sugar
225g Self-raising flour
2tsp Baking powder
225g Soft margarine 
Your choice of filling (Double cream and Raspberries) 

1. Preheat the oven to 180ºc/Gas mark 4 and grease 2 sandwich tins. I can also be a good idea to line them with baking paper, so they have less chance of sticking. 
2. In a large mixing bowl add the eggs. Then mix in the sugar, flour, margarine and baking powder. 
3. Make sure everything is well mixed, with either a wooden spoon or electric whisk. 
4. Split the mixture and put into the tins. 
5. Place the cakes into the oven and cook for 25mins (try not to open the door until the end). 
6. Once golden take them out then place on a cooling tray, and leave until cold.
7. With one cake, fill the top with whatever you like. Some good fillings include: Jam and whipped cream, strawberries and cream. I filled it with raspberries and whipped, double cream and dusted with icing sugar. 

** Please excuse the very flat top, it's because I left it in the oven for slightly too long, so had to put it on upside down!

How To Make A GIF

how to make a GIF , Making a GIF

A Graphics Interchange Format - pronounced JIF.
A form of images that moves as an animation, because the frames are compressed to reduce transfer time. 

You can make a gif on Photoshop but I thought it's better to show you an alternative way as not everyone has access to Photoshop.

I make mine on a website called GIFMAKER.ME I love this website because its so quick, easy and editable(plus, your left with no watermark of the website).

one // Make sure all of the pictures you want to include are edited and the correct size you want.
two // Upload the pictures to
three // Adjust the control panel to your preferences
four // Once it's complete click "Create GIF Animation" and then "Download this GIF"

I look forward to seeing the GIFs you make!
