The Victoria Sponge Cake is a typical English cake and is excellent for filling given its’ spongy ‘, a valid alternative to the usual sponge cake.
I filled it with the frosting that we love most at home, but you can use whatever you want, even jams. This cake is also worth the free flow of your imagination.
And since Mother’s Day is getting closer, it seems like a really nice idea to prepare to celebrate yours. What do you say? She will certainly be amazed.
Next time I’ll decorate it with blueberries or with pieces of chocolate. My goodness what an indecision, when in doubt I will prepare two. 🙂
I leave you with the recipe for the thermomix sponge cake.
See you for the next recipe!
Thermomix Sponge cake
- 225 gr plain wheat flour
- 225 gr sugar
- 225 gr soft butter
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the filling
- 250 ml mascarpone
- 50 ml fresh cream (unwhipped)
- 70 gr icing sugar
- food coloring enough (optional)
- strawberries or fruit of your choice
- limoncello enough
Place the butterfly in the bowl and add the chopped butter, sugar and vanilla, whisk: 3 min. speed. 3.
Without removing the butterfly, set to speed 3 and add the eggs, one at a time and continue for 1 min.
Add the flour and baking powder, mix: 2 min. speed 4.
Butter and flour (or line it with parchment paper) a 20 cm diameter mold and pour the mixture obtained inside.
Level well and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C degrees for 30-40 minutes (always do the toothpick test).
Let it cool completely before unmolding it.
In a clean bowl, prepare the mascarpone frosting as per the recipe and keep it in the fridge until ready to fill the cake.
Take the cake and divide it into 2 equal discs. Prepare the bath by mixing water and a little limoncello in a glass.
Place the first disc on a serving plate, drench it (without exaggeration) with limoncello sauce, fill the inside with part of the mascarpone frosting.
Cover with the other disc and spread the frosting kept aside on the surface of the cake with the help of a flat spatula and decorate with clean strawberries.
Refrigerate until ready to serve… Bon appetit!
Alternatively, you can serve the sponge cake only with a sprinkling of icing sugar. On the other hand, if you want to make it taller and therefore have 3 discs, you will need a smaller pan of at least 18 cm.
