    Mrs Crocombe! One should remember to fold in your flour using a figure-8 manล“uvre using a *metal* spoon, else you will over work the batter and remove the air you have beaten into the eggs. Frankly Iโ€™m shocked! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The video is very well done and all, but I don't think I'd have bothered to watch if I knew that "Victoria Sandwiches" are nothing more than jelly sandwiches made with spongecake instead of bread. Nevertheless, thanks for the throwback to Julie Walters and Helen Mirren with the Victoria Sponge in Calendar Girls.
