victoria sponge redux

victoria sponge redux

well, I tried it again.  I used the right size tins, I checked that the oven was the right temperature with a thermometer, I even softened the butter Just In Case.

and still, my cake was more like a biscuit.  An uncooked biscuit at that.

my sponge making days are over.  Gloom.

That looks beautiful.  My sponges never rise that much.  I'm content with flat cakey things.

Do you have a fan oven and a recipe for non-fan ovens?
