Mini Victoria Sponge Cakes

 

These mini Victoria sponge cakes are a deliciously soft and light bite-sized version of the British classic cake. I usually find cooking with coconut flour dry and dense, but these were fluffy and very yummy.

Baked with coconut flour, this low carb and gluten-free version of a Victoria sponge cake is made into a mini cake to help stop you eating a whole Victoria sponge cake.  My testing controller said they tasted like birthday cake! which was a pleasant surprise.

At only 2g net carbs each before the filling these are the perfect treat for a wonderful picnic, party or just a Sunday treat.
