Victoria sponge sandwich

An easy no fail recipe for me. I made them for a family gathering and everyone loves it. Now my mum "ordered" 8 of them for her to distribute to the relatives and some friends during CNY.

The texture and taste is some where in between butter cake and sponge cake. It is not exactly as rich as butter cake neither it is light as sponge. It has the buttery aroma but not too heavy for your taste bud. Love it with the strawberry jam. It will definitely be better if only I can make my only strawberry jam, perhaps next time.
