This is how it's made Queen Elizabeth Sponge Cake

  1. Heat the oven t 180C- Gas 4 & line 2 x 8 inch round tins
  2. Put all ingredients into a mixer bowl & beat 2-3 minutes or until the mixture just changes to a paler colour.
  3. Split the mix evenly between the 2 tins & bake in the centre of the oven for 30-40 minutes or until a skewer pushed gently into the centre comes out clean or if touched lightly it springs back. Leave in the tins for a couple of minutes to firm & then turn out onto wire racks to cool.
  4. When completely cold level one of the sponges, slice fruit of choice & arrange over the levelled sponge drizzle with a little honey, whip the cream & apply generously over the fruit & place the other sponge on top.
  5. Sift icing sugar over the completed sponge & drizzle with a little honey.
