Thanks to this superb strawberry cake made with a soft sponge cake and a cream cheese topping, you'll have nothing to envy the delights of the pastry shops and you'll pass for a real cream with your guests. So let's get started!

Strawberry cake



For the cake:

150 g of flour

125 g sugar

1/2 sachet of yeast

2 eggs

12 cl of milk

12 cl of oil or 100 g of melted butter (your choice)

For decoration:

500 g strawberries

500 g plain cheese spread

200 g soft, unsalted butter

250 g icing sugar



While your oven is preheating to 200 ° C (th. 7), prepare the sponge cake which will be the base of your cake: in a bowl, pour the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, eggs, milk, oil, or butter (your choice), and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon.


Once it is homogeneous and without lumps, pour your preparation into a round loaf pan (the sides of which you will have buttered to facilitate demolding), then bake for about 30 min, until the tip with a knife comes out almost completely dry. Unmold the cake and let it cool for at least 30 minutes on a wire rack.


While the cake is cooling, wash, hull, and cut the strawberries into slices. Then prepare the topping cream: in a bowl, first, whip the cheese with the butter, then add the icing sugar.


When the cake is warm enough to cut without crumbling too much, remove its top crust by cutting (using the tip of a large knife) a disc (as regular as possible) at 1 cm from the top, so that the top of the cake is as flat as a pie.


Then, coat all its visible walls with the butter and cheese cream (use a large spatula to be even). Finally, arrange slices of strawberries all around the edge of the cake, and also decorate the top, making a sort of pyramid of petals.
