Foolproof Victoria Sandwich

My sponge recipe was taught to me by my mother and handed down for generations before that making it at least 100 years old, but I have never known it to fail. I weigh my eggs in their shell then weigh the other ingredients to that same weight, I will put the exact recipe I used down below, but for the best results, I would suggest just weighing the eggs to get your own measurements.


I hope you like this Victoria sandwich recipe and I really loved the addition of the chocolate strawberries which are quick and easy to make.
