About Empress Sponge Cake

An All Things Delicious take on a classic cake: the Victoria Sponge.

Legend has it that Queen Victoria (Queen of UK from 1837 until her death in 1901), seemed to be suffering from a “sinking feeling” at around 4 o’clock in the afternoons. We all are quite familiar with this “sinking feeling” at 4 o’clock, aren’t we? I for one, have suffered from it all my life!

One of life’s greatest pleasures: tea time was thus invented and the Victoria Sponge is named after the Queen as it was her favourite cake! If you, like me, enjoy delving deeper into history, read on. It will come to no surprise that this “simple” cake became the Queen’s and EVERYONE’s favourite at the time because of the invention of baking powder.

Cake, as we know of it now, was invented when baking powder poofed into the scene. Before baking powder, the cake wasn’t such a piece of cake! Cakes prior to 1856 were made using yeast (which made cake-making a very long 12-24 hour process) and with too much elbow-grease whipping eggs! Thank you to its inventor, Mr Alfred Bird for creating this magical white substance that bakers the world over can’t live without!

This strawberries and cream cake is layered with housemade mixed-berry jam in between the natural, sponge cakes. Enjoy tea time anytime!



This cake is made in a facility that handles dairy, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy and tree nuts.
