Classic Victoria Sponge Cake competition

Jo Richards has been in touch and told us that final plans are now being put in place and the long range weather forecast is promising so far.

Tarvin Fete Poster 2016

Hopefully all those who like baking have the ingredients so they can enter the Classic Victoria Sponge Cake competition but if not, there is still time to get them in. As you will see from the posters around the village this year there are three categories:

5 to 8 years;
9 to 15 years;

All you have to do is follow the recipe below and bring your cake to the Community Centre by 10.30 am on Saturday, 10 June, when the judging will take place — recipe is by Mary Berry — BBC Food


225g Self Raising Flour
225g Baking Spread, Margarine or Soft Butter at room temperature
225g Caster Sugar
4 Eggs
1tsp Baking Powder
Raspberry Jam


  • Preheat the over to 190°C (170°C fan)/Gas 5
  • Grease and line 2 x 20cm/8in sandwich tins
  • In a large bowl beat all the ingredients to a smooth, soft batter
  • Divide the mixture evenly between the tins
  • Smooth the surface and bake for 20 mins or until golden brown and the cake springs back when gently pressed
  • Cool in the tin for 5 mins before removing. Allow to cool completely
  • Spread the jam on the flat surface of one cake and place the other cake on top
  • Dust lightly with extra caster sugar

Get Baking and Good Luck!

We've all been enjoying the lovely, hot weather but the lack of rain and high demand for water means our reservoirs are now lower than we'd like them to be at this time of year.That's why a hosepipe ban will be introduced across the North West from5th August 2018. This means householders won't be allowed to use either a hosepipe or sprinkler as these use an incredible amount of...
