Victoria Sponge Cake

Last weekend, I made a Victoria Sponge Cake. I have always loved the way it looks. There is something very rustic and feminine... and quintessentially English about it. In its simplest - and I believe, authentic - form, it's basically jam and cream sandwiched between 2 layers of sponge. But clearly, there is no harm adding some strawberry slices like I did. They give a fruity punch to an otherwise simple cake.

Biscuit Joconde

A very delicate sponge which I baked for Daring Baker's Challenge. Biscuit Joconde imprime is a French baking term. This delicate patterned sponge can be filled with mousse, cream, custard or jelly...

The name of this dessert may be hard to say, but it isn't hard to eat... it's delicious and easier to make than it looks!

Orange and Almond Sponge with Butterscotch Sauce and Pistachio Praline

Orange and Almond Sponge with Butterscotch Sauce and Pistachio Praline

This recipe combines all the flavors of winter into a warm, comforting dessert. The tanginess of fresh orange is complemented and offset by shaved almonds, a sweet butterscotch sauce and homemade pistachio praline. Best of all, it "whips up in minutes" so that you can "sit back and relax with your family."

I decided to choose a family recipe for the third part of my Nutella Trilogy. I still don't know which of the three Nutella desserts is my favorite. But I do know that this roll did not last long in my home.
