Lime Infused Victoria Sponge with Blueberry Jam

I now it sounds a little weird, especially from someone who writes a baking blog. But I have a little confession to make….. I don’t often make cakes!!! Not in the traditional sense anyway. I love tray-bakes, hey who doesn’t so simple and yummy. Loaf cakes as well, brilliant especially for cakes perfect for breakfast. I am talking good old fashioned layer cakes. Which is crazy after all post war Britain was built on...

But this year I...
