Victoria Sponge Cupcakes

These Victoria Sponges are extremely tasty, filled with jam and topped with cream cheese icing, but be warned – you may need a spoon to eat them!

Inside of Victoria Sponge Cupcake

You will need (Makes 18):

  • 8oz Butter or Margarine
  • 8oz Caster Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Tbsp Milk
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 8oz Self-Raising Flour
  • 1 Jar Strawberry Jam
  • 300g Cream Cheese
  • 150g Icing Sugar
  • Fresh Berries to decorate
  • White Pleated Baking Cups

Baked Vanilla Cupcakes

Preheat your oven to 190 degrees. To make your cupcakes, mix together the Butter, Sugar, Eggs, Milk, Vanilla and Self-Raising Flour on a high speed until well combined. Transfer the mixture to paper baking cases and bake for approx 15 mins.

Cupcake cut in half

Remove the Cupcakes from their cases and cut in half to make two layers.

Victoria Sponge Cupcake Layer

Place the first layer of sponge into your White Baking Cups, it should fit nicely into the bottom of the cup.

Victoria Sponge Filling

Next spoon over a tablespoon of Jam and top with the second layer of sponge.

Cupcakes in Party Cups

I loved using these Party Cups, they are so cute and the jam will be a nice surprise when people dig in.

Cream Cheese Icing

Make your Cream Cheese Icing by mixing together the Icing Sugar and Cream Cheese (but not too much or it will go runny).

Victoria Sponge Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

Place a tablespoon of Cream Cheese icing onto each Cupcake and smooth over until completely covered.

Cream Cheese Icing Cupcakes

The Icing should go right up to the edges of the Party Cups.

Fresh Berries for Cupcakes

Finally, chop up your berries and place a small handful onto each cupcake. As a guide, I used 2 blueberries, 2 pieces of Strawberry and 1 Raspberry on each cupcake.
