Strawberry Sponge Cake
This is a light birthday cake that is perfect in the summer. Substitute strawberries for raspberries for variety.
250g (9oz) butter or margarine
Three tbsp honey
Three large eggs
250g (9oz) self-raising flour
One punnet of strawberries
250ml whipping cream
Preheat your oven to 180 deg C/ 350 deg F/gas mark four. Melt your butter or margarine and honey in a small pan. Sieve flour into a large bowl. Beat your eggs separately. Stir first the hot liquid then your eggs into your flour. Spoon your mixture into a round greased cake tin and bake for about 25 minutes or until golden and firm.
Leave your cake to cool for a few minutes then remove from the tin. When really cool, slice into two. Wash and hull your strawberries. Whip your cream, then separate into two bowls. With a hand blender whip half your strawberries into one half of the cream, until it turns a lovely rosy pink. Spread on the lower half of your cake. Place the top of the cake back on. Spread the rest of your whipped cream on the top of the sugar free cake. Cut each of your remaining strawberries in half and position on top of the cream to decorate.
