Strawberries & Cream Cake

I love cake and I love strawberries and cream in the summer – So the perfect combination is a strawberries and cream cake! It’s lovely and light and perfect for the summer months. Here’s how you can make one too:


For the sponge:

  • 8oz Margarine (not butter)
  • 8oz Caster sugar
  • 8oz Self raising flour
  • 4 Eggs

For the butter cream: 

  • 4oz Icing sugar
  • 2oz Butter

For the fresh cream:

  • 300ml Whipping cream
  • 2 Teaspoons of Sugar

Plus a large punnet of strawberries for decorating.

Step 1 

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 (190 degrees)
  • Grease two 8″ round baking tins (I also put a round piece of grease proof paper in the bottom as my tins don’t push up)

Step 2

  • Cream together the sugar and margarine in a large bowl (I always sieve the sugar to get rid of any lumps)
  • Add the eggs 1 at a time and mix together until you get a smooth mixture
  • Sieve in the self raising flour and continue to mix until completely smooth

Step 3 

  • Separate the mixture into your two baking tins making sure to evenly spread the mixture in the tin
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes (always put a knife into the cake after 30 minutes to check its properly cooked)
  • Remove from the tins and leave to cool

Step 4 

  • In a bowl mix together the butter and icing sugar to make the butter cream – WARNING – this will make a massive mess!
  • Evenly spread the butter cream over one of the cakes.
  • Slice the strawberries and place over the top of the butter cream.

Step 5 

  • Put the other half of the cake on top to create a sandwich affect
  • In a bowl mix together the whipping cream and 2 tea spoons of sugar (I’d recommend using an electric whisk else you’ll be there all day) – The cream will start off runny and you need to keep mixing it until its thick enough to spread over the cake without it running everywhere.
  • Spread the cream over the top of the cake and add strawberries to decorate.

And hey presto you have yourself a delicious strawberries and cream cake! Make sure you keep it in the fridge as it has fresh cream on the top of it.

‘See ya real soon!
