“ Brand: Asda / Type: Sponge Cake „
I am supposed to be dieting again but not having much success at the moment! So once again it's a review of a nice tasting cake from Asda's extra special range. This is a hand finished cake and is described as ' All butter sponge made with free range eggs, traditionally layered with strawberry jam and butter cream'. The sponge is lovely and moist and the filling tastes good; with just about the right amount jam and butter cream. There is probably enough for about 6 medium portions or 4 large ones! Although Asda state that there are 8 servings! It is a light cake too and in my view a good quality one. You can see what the cake looks like through the box which is something I like and it certainly makes it look more tempting!
