ABOUT BRITISH BATTENBURG CAKE RECIPE

Battenburg cake is said to have been invented in 1884, in honour of the marriage of Queen Victoria's grand daughter, Victoria of Hesse-Darmsadt, to the Greman prince Louis of Battenburg. Like Coronation Chicken, created for our Queen's coronation nearly 70 years later, it was so popular that it never went away.
