So, what do you need to make your delicious strawberry cake?
2 round,plain, sponge cakes.
1 egg yolk.
1 tablespoon icing sugar.
vanilla extract 1 teaspoon.
400ml whipping cream.
Punnet of strawberries.
Then the next step is assembling the strawberry cake:
First of all, find a recipe for 2 round sponge cakes, and make those. Let them cool.
Slice up half your strawberries thinly, leaving enough whole ones to cover the top of the cake.
Whisk the egg yolk and the icing sugar together. Then add the vanilla extract.
Whip 150mls of the cream and then fold it into the egg and sugar mix.
Spread the cream mixture over the first sponge cake (bottom layer).
Then lay the chopped strawberries over the top of the cream, covering the cake.
Place the second cake on the top.
Whip 250mls of the cream and then spread all over the top of the cake and around the sides.
Place the remaining whole strawberries onto the top, and there you have a very tasty Swedish strawberry cake 🙂
