How pretty are these individual keto Victoria Sponges? Such a lovely addition to a fancy afternoon tea or even a dinner party keto dessert.

The vanilla cake used as a base for these cakes is one of my very favourite low-carb treats. Soft, moist and very vanilla-y, it’s delicious.

Add a luscious layer of my Raspberry Balsamic Chia Jam or any other sugar-free chia jam and some whipped cream and you have an official slice of heaven. Enjoy!

This is the best low carb cake recipe I've made, yet, plus it's super elegant. I recently made it one large cake split in half and filled with sugar-free strawberry and blueberry jam and whipped cream for a tea party and it was a total hit! I was actually sad I didn't have leftovers lol.

Thank you so much for your kind words, I'm glad you enjoyed!

Could you use this same recipe to make a type of jelly roll? Bake on a cookie sheet and then fill with a Keto whipped cream? Would it roll up properly?

Hi Lori, I think this dough will break. I'd definitely make it with separated eggs (beaten egg whites) and maybe even add some protein powder and psyllium or gelatine powder to keep it together. I'll put that in my to-do recipe list! 😊

Dear Martina and Naomi,
Photos indicate a victoria sponge with a top and bottom layer which seems to indicate that one whole sponge is one serving.
However, it says this serves 12, indicating you can only eat one half of the victoria sponge since there are only 6 spring forms.
I think this recipe looks amazing but I am nervous about going over my food limits. Please clarify portion size? Thank you, gina

Hi Gina, that is correct. One serving is half of the cake. You could use smaller cake forms to make 12 sponges (1 serving- 1 cake). When it comes to the images, I think what happened is that Naomi used bigger cake forms and only made 4 larger Victoria sponges instead of 6. I'll clarify in the recipe - thank you!
