Tis the season to be berry!
The makerts are overflowing with berries of all kind. Name them, they are all there.
For the past 2 weeks the kids have been wanting to have vanilla ice cream, fresh strawberries and chocolate sauce. That's all they have been wanting as dessert. I thought it was time for a change...:D
So here's what they were treated to last evening. Victoria's sponge cake with cream and strawberries.
Beat 3 eggs separately. Cream together 175 gms unsalted butter and 175 gms sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly add the beaten egg. Fold in 175 gms of sifted self raising flour and spoon the mixture into a prepared cake tin.
Bake at 180 deg celsius for 20 to 25 minutes(I kept it a wee bit longer and ended up browning the sides)
While the cake cools.....
Wash, wipe and cut the strawberries. Whip 500 ml double cream along with 3 tbsps sugar until thick.
Once cooled, cut the cake in two(alternatively you can bake 2 cakes if you like) and sandwich them with the cream and fresh strawberries.
