Cool down your hot summer days with this insanely light and airy fresh strawberry cake. It’s so refreshing and delicious and the sponge is super fluffy and soft. You could eat the entire thing without even realizing! 🙂
My family and I were actually surprised at how light this cake turned out. I’ve had this recipe for a few years now and I used to make it topped with mixed fruits and nuts but this fresh strawberry version has proved to be something special. It has since become the main cake I give away to people because it truly is a crowd pleaser.
The cake itself is made up of mainly eggs beaten until thick. A bit of cornflour mixed with plain flour gives this cake an extra light texture.
I usually make my cakes at night for the next day because they get alot more flavourful by then. I wanted to show a picture of the sponge (picture below) which I drizzled with some simple sugar syrup to enhance moisture.
Once it’s cooled, whip up some cream and top with anything you like!
So delicious and refreshing, this cake is super easy and straight forward to make. Top with any fresh fruit and enjoy 🙂
Linda, this cake is absolutely beautiful and sounds so amazing. Just reading about it, I could literally taste the lightness of it. This is a cake I definitely will be making. Pinned 🙂
