Product Description

The Marriage Family
W & H Marriage & Sons Ltd has been milling flour in Essex since 1824.

Marriage's was founded by twins William and Henry nearly 200 years ago. Today the fifth and sixth generations of the Marriage family continue the milling tradition. We source the best wheat, much of it from farmers within 30 miles of Chelmer Mills (pictured above), including our own arable farms. Our flour is produced using a combination of the traditional techniques we have trusted for generations and the best modern milling technology.

Marriage's range includes Organic, Speciality and Stoneground flours.

Victoria Sandwich
Preparation Time 20 minutes
Baking Time 25 minutes
Makes 1 Large Cake

Sponge Cake
225g Fines Self Raising flour
225g unsalted butter, at room temperature
225g caster sugar
3 large free-range eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

4 rounded tablespoons of good jam: raspberry, strawberry or blackberry
200g berries: raspberries, strawberries or blackberries
150ml double or whipping cream, chilled
2 x 20.5cm/8inch sandwich tins, greased and based-lined

1. Heat the oven to 160°C fan/180°C/350°F/ Gas 4.
2. Put the soft butter and sugar into a bowl and beat until very light and creamy. Beat the eggs and vanilla with a fork then gradually beat into the butter mixture, beating well after each addition. Sift the flour onto the mixture and carefully fold in with a large metal spoon.
3. Divide the mixture between the two lined tins and spread evenly. Bake in the heated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a light golden brown and the sponge spring back when gently pressed.
4. Run a round-bladed knife around the side of the tins to loosen the sponges then turn out on a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
5. Set one sponge upside down on a serving plate and spread with the jam. Top with the berries. Whip the cream until it thickens and stands in soft peaks. Spread the cream over the berries then gently place the second sponge on top and press down to sandwich the cakes.
6. Dust with icing sugar. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and eat within two days.

Recipe Tip
For individual cakes divide the mixture into mini Victoria sandwich tins or small metal pudding basins.

Unpleasant Taste

This flour had a very unpleasant taste, almost rancid. I like Marriages, as they are a local company, and I haven't had problems before, but I don't think I would risk buying this product again.

This tasty variation on the traditional pink and white battenburg cake pairs chocolate and orange. The recipes requires a little effort, however the result is more than worth it! You'll find more delicious recipes like this one in Olive Magazine.

Last-Minute Christmas Cake

Last-Minute Christmas Cake

An easy, simple recipe with few ingredients; this cake has all the smells and flavours of a traditional well-matured Christmas cake yet can be made just a day or so before cutting and won't disappoint. The secret is to use a jar of really good mincemeat - either homemade or the best you can find - as the matured fruit and nut mixture will be plump and moist and full of spices and, if you're lucky, spirit. The top can be left plain, scattered with granulated sugar or brushed with melted apricot jam then decorated with nuts.

Christmas Cake

Christmas Cake

Rich, dense and fruity, this is a Christmas cake in the best tradition. Top up the booze as much you like (or dare!). As ingredients, I’ve gone for Columbian Blacktail eggs because they really add to that richness; Marriage’s extra fine self-raising flour – you’ll find it hard to beat their quality; and Dr Oetker Ready to Roll icing, as it’s just so much easier than making your own!
