VICTORIA SPONGE (2)

Victoria Sponge is a classic of the Anglo-Saxon tradition. Named in honor of Queen Victoria, who appreciated it during a tasting of afternoon tea, this cake is simple and quick to prepare.

The classic recipe consists of butter, raspberries jam or vanilla cream, as filling. In my recipe, the Italian twist is given by Gianduja chocolate spread from Turin (palm oil free). A mild high quality extra virgin olive oil, instead of butter, gives an extra soft texture, making the cake lighter and also suitable for those suffering from lactose or other milk proteins intolerances. Finally, wholemeal Kamut flour, noble unrefined flour, is rich in nutrients and very soft and complete a greedy sweet. Single portion give a touch of elegance and can also be served as a dessert at the end of a meal.
