Once you have mastered how to make a basic victoria sponge cake, you can vary the recipe to create all kinds of different cakes. For example, if you replace 20 per cent of the flour with cocoa powder, as here, you can create a chocolate sponge (you don't want too great a percentage of cocoa, or the cake will turn out to be too heavy). Furthermore, the mixture will bake just as well in a muffin tray, giving you individual cakes, which look wonderful on the buffet table, or with afternoon tea
Makes: 12 cakes
