Victoria Sponge Cake


A good ol' fashioned recipe in ounces, the reason for this is my grandmother always told me it was easy to remember the quantities of the ingredients for a Victoria sponge cake recipe as it was the same number of ounces for the sugar, flour and butter and half the number of eggs.
