Ready to put our dairy-free Victoria sponge recipe to the test? All it takes is 5 quick and easy steps:


  1. Place all the cake ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until well mixed. This should take around 2-3 minutes.
  2. Place the dairy-free Victoria sponge cake batter in 2 greased and bottom lined 20cm (8 inch) sandwich tins.
  3. Bake your sponge in the centre of pre-heated oven at 170°C (160°C fan or Gas mark 4) for 30-35 minutes. Turn out to cool and remove the paper from the bottom of your cakes.
  4. Sandwich the two halves of your dairy-free Victoria sponge together with jam of your choice. Strawberry or raspberry is a traditional option but why not try something different like lemon curd or blackberry jam to give this classic cake a contemporary twist?
  5. Dredge the top with a generous dusting of powdery icing sugar, slice and serve.

Why not serve your dairy-free Victoria sponge cake with some fresh fruit for added flavour and texture? Matching the fruit to the jam in the filling is a great way to tie everything together. You’ll also want to stock up on a few other dairy-free essentials, such as nut milk, so you can enjoy this classic sponge cake as nature intended: with a nice cup of tea!
