 Sponge Cake with Strawberries and Whipped Cream

Ingredients:  for a 15 cm/6 inch round cake  (measurements for 18 cm and 21 cm cake can be found below- see notes).

  • 2 Large eggs or 2 ½ small eggs- at ROOM temperature
  • ½ cup / 60 gms sugar
  • 20 ml milk
  • 2/3 cups /60 gms cake flour
  • 20 gms/ 1Tbsp+1 tsp butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract – optional

For Whipped Cream :

  • 400 ml whipping cream
  • 2 – 3 tsp icing sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla powder
  • you’ll need a bowl of ice water or ice.


  • Prepare the whipped cream the day before for best results:
  • Chill the bowl and wire whisk for whipping the cream in freezer for 30 min.
  • Also chill the cream.
  • Place te bowl in an ice bath/bed, add the cream.
  • Whisk till soft peaks. Add the icing sugar and vanilla powder. Continue to whisk till stiff. At this point stop whisking or you’ll end up making butter. Cover the bowl of whipped cream with saran wrap and place in the fridge overnight.
  • Next day:
  • Sift the flour twice for best results.
  • Preheat oven to 180ºc/356 ºF.
  • Soak your eggs in warm water for 5 minutes- this leads to better aeration and thus a higher cake.
  • Prepare your 15 cm/6″ cake tin by lining bottom and sides with parchment paper.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl. Add the sugar.
  • Bring water to a simmer in another bowl ( larger than the one with the egg). Simmer at 70ºc (I like to use my induction cooker for this).
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar briefly by hand.
  • Now place inside the bowl of simmering water  (it can be put down in the water) and whisk non stop by hand till the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is luke warm to the touch.
  • Now, transfer to electric mixer and whisk on medium speed till light and fluffy.
  • Heat milk for 20 seconds on high in microwave.
  • Pour the milk into the  whisked egg and whisk again till light and fluffy again.
  • Add the vanilla extract now if using.
  • Now add the flour in TWO batches into the batter , sprinkling all over the batter, stir with spatula by hand always turning in the same direction, till there is no more dry flour and the batter becomes glossy. Do not over stir.
  • Heat butter in microwave till melted into an oil-like consistency and hot.
  • Add quickly into the batter and mix very quickly till no traces of liquid butter is left. Check by folding batter from bottom of bowl.
  • Pour into the prepared cake tin and bake for 18 minutes.
  • When it is done, quickly remove the cake onto wire rack and allow to cool completely in the parchment paper.
  • Once the cake is cooled, slice into 3 equal portions.
  • Top each layer with cream, sliced strawberries and a bit more cream.
  • Frost the top layer and sides of the cake and place i the fridge for 30 m – 1 hour.
  • Take out and frost with another smooth layer and decorate/pipe as desired. Decorate with strawberries.
  • Chill till served. This cake must only be left at room temp for a max of 1 hour.
  • SO GOOD!
