Victorian Vanilla Cake with Apricot Jam

Hello and thank you so much for visiting Health Alignment today. This Victorian Vanilla Cake is moist but fluffy at the same time. I have to admit that this cake actually happened by accident. My original idea was to create a vegan swiss roll which is still in the making but there was a plot twist and I landed up creating this Victorian Vanilla Cake which I was just as delighted with. I'm very happy to report that this cake is very satisfying on so many levels from the perfect amount of sweetness to the perfect flavour of vanilla and apricot jam. This cake is amazingly easy to make so its a great recipe to get kids involved.
