Birthday Cake

1 comment


250g all purpose flour
250g sugar
20g cornstarch
300ml soymilk (or your favorite)
1 packet +1 teaspoon baking powder
1 packet vanilla powder
40g soy butter melted
50g cocoa powder
600-700g whipped soycream
1 basket of strawberries (about 500g)-you should buy at least twice to avoid surprises-
300g jam (choice of strawberries and wild berries)

Step 1: Before you begin, line with baking paper your cake tin, preheat oven to 180 degrees and melt the butter.  In a bowl put sugar, sifted flour, frumina, cocoa, vanilla and baking powder. Stir with a whisk and add milk and melted butter. If the mixture is too thick add a little milk.
Check that there are no lumps, then pour the mixture into the mold and bake (always 180). The cake is ready in 30 ‘, do not open the oven for any reason before 30’ because it might jeopardize the rising. When the timer has given you permission, open the oven and check that the cake is actually baked with a toothpick.
Remove from the oven and let cool for several hours. I have prepared this the night before.

Step 2:  Place your cake on the final serving dish.
With a knife with long blade, cut the cake in half. Lift the top very carefully because there are high chances to destroy it and suddenly you become very unhappy. 🙂 Mix the jam with 1 tablespoon water and spread it evenly over the bottom half. Put the top on the cake-always-very carefully.

Step 3: whip the cream and spread an even layer over the entire surface of the cake. With the help of a pastry bag also spread sides of the cake with a layer of cream. Put in refrigerator.

Step 4: Wash and dry the strawberries and cut in half.
Take the cake out from the refrigerator and begin to arrange the strawberries on the cream carpet.
Let rest in refrigerator for a while before serving.

Sure it takes lots of patience, but the result is wonderful!

Buon Appetito!
