On your marks, get set, bake!

52 weeks. 52 bakes.
Week 1. Bake 1.

Today was my first. Victoria Sponge.

To be honest I used the recipe from The Great British Bake Off cookbook. So I probably shouldn't put the recipe up on my blog, and I wont. But here is what I have learned today whilst making it.

  1. To make the best cake use butter which has been out of the fridge for about 1 hour.
  2. Beat the sugar and butter together for 4-5 minutes which will make it much lighter.
  3. Measure the cake tin lining carefully or you will get crinkly edges to your cake.
