There are a few theories as to where this cake originated from. My favourite one is that the cake was named in honour of the marriage of Princess Victoria, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, to Prince Louis of Battenberg in 1884 – according to wikipedia.
I’ve veganised this classic English cake in the latest episode of my cooking series VEGAN AROUND THE WORLD. I even asked a British person to come and review the cake at the end of the show to see how it compares the original recipe. You can watch the first 5 mins of the episode below.
