Just made this for the first time and its brilliant. Haven't been able to get hold of any gluten free self raising flour so used plain and added 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum and 2 teaspoons of baking powder (I made the 20cm cake). Used the creaming method and it turned out just like a regular victoria sandwich.

I have been asked to do one of 3 gluten free cakes for my boss’s party. Bare it in mind that I have never done anything gluten free in my entire life I was convinced that it will end up with disaster and disappointments. This recipe was easy to follow (and I did it to the letter) and surprisingly sponge came out perfect and it not only looked good but it was delicious too. No one even noticed it was GF, fab. Will definitely do it again.

After years of failed sandwich cakes making and biscuit sized sponges, I was determined to try again!! Using this recipe from Doves farm I succeeded in baking a cake that even I was amazed that I’d made it - thank you Doves farm for a light tasty sponge and a failsafe recipe - I’ve baked this cake again and again. I especially like The fact that you can change the tin size and still get a great result!!!

This sponge turned out great- a lovely golden brown and tasted like a normal Victoria sponge! Definitly beat with an electric mixer for at least 5 minutes (I did around 7 minutes). Did it in one 20 cm tin so had to half the recipe which turned out to be the recipe for the smallest cake! Also didn't have any gluten free self - raising flour so just added 2 teaspoons of baking powder to the flour (Used the website's brand plain flour). That's all- great recipe would highly recommend!

I made this sponge yesterday and it was lovely, you wouldn’t have known it was g/f. Will be using more of your recipes. I have been saving the recipes, but do you have a recipe book ?

First time I've made a plain gluten free Victoria Sandwich cake and it was fab! All in one recipe, so easy to do - once the ingredients were combined (just), I beat the mix for 2 mins with an electric whisk and got a really light sponge. Thanks so much.

I made this recipe dairy free too, using dairy free butter and coconut cream for filling. The sponge has come out delicious and can’t tell it is gf - will be using again!

I made one using the all-in-one method and another using the traditional method of creaming fat and sugar first. The traditional method gave a superior result.

Initially I made the largest size for a birthday cake.. . Wow! A beautiful, light and moreish sponge. Now
a firm favorite in our household. I also use the mixture to make fairy cakes too. Both freeze well, which is great as I prefer to batch bake. Enjoy!

I'm trying to save money at the moment and this gf recipe is perfect for my sweet tooth without paying for lots of exotic ingredients. I pour into small fairy cake cases to make it last longer. I then pop in the freezer and take one out before bed to defrost for work the next day, perfect!

I made this cake using the 20cm cake tin recipe, it was perfect and tasted lush! A big hit with my 10 year old daughter who has ceoliac disease

Works a treat every time. My husband has a dairy intolerance so we just use just in the middle and it’s still delicious. Best gluten free sponge cake so far!
