Let’s talk about this Strawberry Victoria Cake!  It is a delicious sponge cake that is said to have been a favorite of Queen Victoria’s.  I made this for a dear friend upon request and have since tweaked the recipe to add some additional moisture.  

This cake plates beautifully, and goes so well with a late brunch!
