George, Charlotte, and Louis are big fans of Camilla’s ‘unusual’ cake recipe

2 min read

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has revealed that she uses an unusual ingredient in her take on Victoria Sponge and the Cambridge children are reportedly huge fans, according to a quip at a recent event.

On Wednesday, the Duchess attended a tea party for broadcaster Gyles Brandreth's Poetry Together initiative in London.

The 74-year-old wife of Prince Charles joined schoolchildren and care home residents at the event, ExpressOnline reports.

At the event earlier this week, Camilla met with two pupils from Broadwater Primary School in Tooting, south London, along with two Chelsea Pensioners.

The scheme centres on the idea of bringing together young and old people through poetry.

It encourages the link-up of schools and care homes, where representatives from each learn a poem off by heart, and come together to recite it.

The groups joined together to cut a pair of Victoria Sponges, one with the traditional layer of jam and cream and one which used Nutella instead.

Camilla revealed to the group that the latter ingredient makes her version of the classic cake a huge hit with her grandchildren – including Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The creation using non-traditional chocolate spread was praised by Gyles Brandreth, who joked that the royal had "changed the face of the Victoria Sponge forever".

Camilla also has several grandchildren through her daughter and son, Laura Lopes and Tom Parker Bowles, from her first marriage.

And if the chocolate spread wasn't enough of a chocolate fix, Camilla also told students from Whitehill Primary School that she enjoyed the cake with hot chocolate.

In aid of the Poetry Together initiative, the Duchess revealed her own personal recipe back in September.

The Victoria sponge cake recipe was suggested especially for the scheme’s tea parties.

Her recipe also suggested alternative fillings instead of the traditional jam layer, including Nutella and lemon curd.
