VICTORIA SPONGE

It’s back to basics today with a simple, but delicious keto-friendly Victoria Sponge.  Using home-made keto Raspberry Jam (recipe from the blog), this traditional and wonderful tea-time treat is just 5 carbs per slice! With one batch of Raspberry Jam, I made the Bakewell Tarts and this Victoria Sponge.  I can’t wait for the kids to come home….. a familiar and happy taste from their childhood!

Ingredients – 10 Slice Cake

  • 225g         Almond Flour
  • 2 tsp         Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp      Xanthan Gum
  • 120g         Melted Butter
  • 5 large      Eggs
  • 1 tsp         Vanilla Extract
  • 60 ml        Skinny Syrup Sweetener (Vanilla or Simple)
  • 1/2 batch   Raspberry Jam (recipe from the blog)
  • 200ml       Double Cream
  • 25ml         Skinny Syrup Sweetener (Vanilla or Simple) if desired
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 175*C
  • Line and grease two 7″ loose-bottomed cake tins
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • All the melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract and 60ml Syrup Sweetener and mix well for a minute until thoroughly combined
  • If your mixture is a little stiff, then you can add a splash of almond milk to loosen it
  • Pour the cake batter equally into the two cake tins, level off, and bake in the centre of the oven for 15-16 mins or until a cocktail stick comes out clean
  • Take out of the tins and cool on a wire rack
  • When the cakes are cool, spread the raspberry jam on the bottom half of the cake
  • Whisk the cream until stiff peaks form and then if desired, whisk through the 25ml of syrup sweetener
  • Pipe or spread the cream on top of the raspberry jam and place the second layer of sponge on the top
  • If you have a little erythritol (or keto) icing sugar, you can sieve a little onto the top to make it look pretty.
Enjoy!
NOTE: I OFTEN ADJUST MY RECIPES WHEN I FIND NEW INGREDIENTS AND WILL UPDATE THE RECIPES ON MY BLOG ACCORDINGLY (RATHER THAN PRODUCING ANOTHER RECIPE), SO PLEASE ALWAYS CHECK BEFORE MAKING.
