- Victoria Sponge Cake : The classic way to make a Victoria sponge cake is to weigh the eggs on one side of a pair of balance scales (where the weights stand) and weigh the other ingredients on the scale pan so as to be absolutely accurate. I have followed this method faithfully and found that 2 medium eggs weigh 4 oz (110g) but do not provide enough liquid for the mixture – so I now use 2 large eggs and weigh everything else in the usual way.

- Orange Scented Sponge Cake : I made this Fresh Orange Sponge Cake from my The Fannie Farmer Baking Book. It is a classic and really nothing about it needs changing. It is light and the orange gives the cake a fresh flavor that isn’t overly sweet. Found at Zoe Bakes.
