I love desserts that have a beautiful story as much as I love creating entremets or other desserts from scratch. And this Victoria sponge cake makes no exception. Having British origins, it seems that this cake was named after Queen Victoria who was introduced to it by Anna, the Dutchess of Bedford and it soon became one of her favorite cakes. In fact, Queen Victoria is quite famous for her sweet tooth and historics say she used to order dozens of cakes and cookies to be sent to her palace every week. So it’s safe to say that she absolutely loved cake!
This is an absolutely delicious juice recipe! When I first made it I just loved the color, but wasn’t sure how the tastes would blend together. Mixing orange and carrots is a no brainer but adding in beets and ginger? Well it is absolutely different from other juices I’ve tasted but in a very good way! The beets and pomegranate hit your taste buds straight away and the ginger (yum) stays with you for an extra second or two after each gulp. It’s so easy to make and ready in less than 5 minutes. My kids enjoyed this one and my husband said it’s one of his favorite juices ever, no lie! I think the pineapple is a secret weapon as it only takes a little bit to give a natural sweetness to any juice blend.
