Strawberry Cake

| 0 comments

I cannot not bake if my baking itch strikes. The itch came back this week so yesterday I made this strawberry cake.

Here’s the recipee for my friends from South Africa 🙂

For the base:

take equal volumes of butter, sugar, flour, walnuts (here I used pecan nuts)

in this cake I used a small glass of each, roughly 50g, the pan was 20cm wide

add an egg, add a bit of rum (I used Amarula here)

mix

bake in oven at 180 degrees for 30 mins, be careful to check before that so that you don’t burn it

the filling:

whip 500ml of fresh cream

take 10g of gelatine in leaves, soak it in cold water for 5 mins, take it out and squeeze it gently

pour a bit of hot water into a bowl, dissolve gelatine in it

add two plain yoghurts and mix

add sugar to sweeten, today I haven’t added enough, could be sweeter

add whipped cream

mix

when base is cooled to room temperature start adding the filling on top

add a layer of filling, then add fruit, in this case strawberries

repeat layering

make a nice fruit pattern on top

Put in fridge over the night

Voila!
