Summer Recipe: Victoria Sponge

Heading to a barbecue or picnic this summer? Why not whip up this guilt-free pudding to share with your friends and family.  

This is one recipe to make the grandparents proud. It’s our take on the classic Victoria Sponge Cake, only we’ve dosed it up on good health, and added an ingredient or two as part of the FFF touch. 

Think the same fluffy sponge, and sweet centre, topped with cream cheese frosting, macerated strawberries, and balsamic roasted pistachios.

Almost sounds too good to be true…
