  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time.

Delicious cake, rose beautifully and very moist. I use coffee butter cream for the filling for a real coffee flavour.

Fabulous cake. It rose evenly, tasted great, and the recipe adapts easily for a vanilla victoria sponge or cup cakes using a teaspoon of vanilla essence plus enough milk to make the liquid up to 2 tablespoons.

Have used this recipe for years with and ordinary butter cream filling and love it without the coffee for a victoria sponge with jam filling.

Very disappointing - cake hardly rose and was very greasy. Wouldn't consider myself a star baker but previous attempts at baking have turned out better.
