Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for this traditional Gluten and Dairy Free Victoria Sandwich cake. I must start by saying sorry there is only one picture. I made this for my family coming over and I forgot to take a picture of it sliced and beforeI knew it was all gone.

This recipe is actually one I posted on the site right back at the every beginning about seven years. The photograph was looking a little old so I decided to re-do it again. I actually make this recipe a lot as it is quick to do and always a family favourite. I have a lemon version as well which I’ll update the photographs for as well sometime soon.
