Did you know that Strawberry Cream Victoria Sponge Cake was Queen Victoria’s favourite cake?
Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788-1861), was a lady in waiting for Queen Victoria. She is most often credited with the creation of #afternoontea
It wasn’t long before Queen Victoria adopted the idea of an afternoon tea and by 1855, the observance was firmly established. After the death of her husband, Prince Albert, it’s believed that favored cake was renamed, “Victoria Sponge Cake.”
Queen Elizabeth says, “The Victoria Sponge was named after Queen Victoria, who regularly ate a slice of sponge cake with her tea, each afternoon!”
Strawberries are luscious, delicious, pretty, bright red, fruits that are healthy for you! They can be enjoyed and savoured in many ways and a variety of recipes! Or you can eat them fresh from your garden or patio baskets. #seelinkinbio for a few recipes for you!
