Hello there,

This evening I decided to do a spot of baking, so I grabbed my ingredients and a cup of tea (of course?) and so then it became bake o'clock!

I decided to bake a Victoria Sponge here's the ingredients (I used a recipe from the YouTube channel 'RelishNetwork'):

- 3 eggs
- 170 grams self raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder (I didn't do this step)
- 170 grams caster sugar
- 170 grams soft margaine
- 1 tbsp warm water
- butter and icing sugar for the butter cream filling

Cuppa tea at the ready - in my lovely mug

Once you have measured out all the ingredients for the Victoria Sponge, you then need to place all your ingredients into a bowl and mix mix mix!

Mix mix mixing... starts to look a little something like this:

and then this:

Now time to get messy and grease the baking tins!

Next - time to pour your ingredients evenly into the 2 tins, like so...TADA!

Stick between 20/25 mins on the cooker at 170 degrees and you're ready to cook.

Up next on my list was the buttercream filling, I measured out 280 grams of icing sugar and 140 grams of butter. I had a little too much buttercream icing however, so less icing sugar is needed! Half way through I added some hot water.

Beep beep, after I had made the buttercream the cakes were ready to come out and cool

 Leave the cakes to cool and then add the buttercream.
I didn't leave enough time and the buttercream got a little 'sloppy' (to put it nicely).

The end result should look a little something like mum and I then sat on our balcony and ate a slice of cake. It was so very yummy and fluffy, accompanied of course by another cup of tea.

 Thank you for reading.

Hope you enjoyed bake o'clock
