Almost everywhere in London - Bakeries, Tea places and Cafes, I found one thing that was omnipresent - Victoria Sponge Cake. It was love at first sight for me and I was immediately taken by these mini sponge cakes sandwiched together with jam and dusted with powdered sugar. The best part was, they were not covered with pretty frosting. This was the only dessert, that, I kept on eating , the whole time that we stayed in London. And, now that, I'm back in California, I tasked myself to bake this Victoria Sponge Cake - Just for me. This spongy cakes are names Victoria Sponge Cake, because it became popular during the reign of Queen Victoria. These cakes are a quintessential English tea time treat.
