Victoria bundt cake
I decided to use my Nordic Ware U.K citrus loaf pan to bake what I call the Victoria bundt cake. It is a Victoria sponge cake recipe baked in a Nordic Ware U.K citrus loaf pan.
- 200g butter, unsalted softened, plus extra for greasing
- 200g self-raising flour
- 200g golden caster sugar
- 200g eggs (about 3 large eggs), at room temperature.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tbsp raspberry jam
- Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4, then grease and flour your Nordic Ware U.K citrus loaf pan and put it to one side
- Put the butter, vanilla extract and sugar into a bowl and cream it together. Add eggs one at a time and mix well between each egg added. Add the flour and mix until smooth, you can use a hand whisk if you cannot get it smooth enough.
- Put the mixture in to the Nordic Ware U.K citrus pan and smooth the surfaces.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes (depending on your oven) or until well risen and golden brown and the cake feel springy when lightly pressed. Check on it after 35 minutes and if it is browning too brown and you think it might burn cover with foil and continue baking.
- Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes then transfer to wire cooling racks to cool completely. If it is stuck use a spatula to go around the cake tin to loosen it.
- Cut the cake in half and then spread jam on one side and buttercream icing.
- I used a star nozzle to pipe some buttercream icing on top of the jam and then placed the patterned side of the cake on top and dusted some icing sugar on top.
Put the Victoria bundt cake on a serving plate and cut and enjoy.
