Hi I'd like to make a Victoria sandwich. I've bought Delia's 18cm, deep, loose based tin. What is the baking temp and timing for this. Every recipe I've looked at only has temp and time for shallow tins. Hope someone can help.

Hello Baffled,

That’s because a Victoria Sandwich needs to be made in 2 x 18cm sandwich tins, not an 18cm, deep cake tin.

This cookery school lesson explains all.

I'd hoped I could bake it in the one tin, then cut through the middle into two layers. Can't i do that? I don't have a big oven so this would definitely be easier.

Hello again,

We do this 2 egg sponge in the 20cm tin and split it.

http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/cuisine/european/english/strawberries-and-cream-sponge-cake.html

I haven’t tested it but you could try the 2 egg sponge in your 18cm tin and split it. Keep the temperature at 170C and check it at 30 minutes.

Best wishes

Thanks Lindsay. I'll try that. If it doesn't work I'll just have to buy two sandwich tins and maybe bake them one at a time. Thanks again for your help :)

For Baffled

If you do end up baking them one at a time its best to make a 1 egg sponge mixture twice as the raising agent doesn’t work as well if it's left hanging around.

Also it will look like an incredibly small amount of mixture in the tin but the proportions once filled are as they should be.

Good luck with your first try.

I decided to go to Glasgow today, a two hour journey on my day off, to buy two 7" Delia's sandwich tins, but the staff in the Lakeland didn't even know that Lakeland had them on their website. Ended up buying 1 Mary Berry sandwich tin and I'll use half the mixture in the deep cake tin. I would've bought them off the website but I need them for this weekend. Very disappointed in Lakeland,

That’s a shame; my experience of Lakeland has always been very good.

John Lewis has the Deliaonline range of tins too and they do Click and Collect if you ever want to buy any more.

Best wishes

Thanks again Lindsay, I didn't know that John Lewis had them. I'll keep that in mind.
