  • 175g self-raising gluten-free flour

  • 75ml milk
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • For the filling:
  • 150ml whipping cream, lightly whipped
  • 3-4tbsp strawberry or raspberry jam
  • You will need:
  • 2x20cm (8in) round sandwich tins, buttered and base lined


  • Set the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5.

  • Tip the cake ingredients into a bowl and beat until smooth. Divide the mixture between the sandwich tins and spread out.

  • Bake the sponges for 20-25 mins, until they’ve risen and feel springy to the touch. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tins for about 5 mins, then transfer them to a wire rack to cook completely.

  • Fill with the cream and jam, and then dredge the top with caster sugar before serving.

Top tip for making Gluten-free Victoria sponge

The unfilled cooled cake may be wrapped in freezer bags and frozen for up to 1 month. Allow the cakes to defrost before filling with cream and jam.
