Strawberry and mascarpone cake
Method

For the strawberries

  • In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the strawberries and refrigerate for 1 hour.

For the cake

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Grease two 20 cm cake pans with butter, dust with flour and line bottoms with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder and sift. Add the salt and mix.
  • In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks, 250 g sugar, vegetable oil, water and vanilla extract. Add the orange zest and mix well.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix with a silicone spatula.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, beat the egg whites to create a nice meringue. As soon as it starts to form peaks, add the sugar in two batches and continue beating for 3-4 minutes. You don’t want to make the meringue too stiff.
  • Add ¼ of the meringue to the mixture to help it become fluffy. Add the remaining meringue in 2 batches and gently fold with a spatula.
  • Divide the batter between the two prepared cake pans and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow them to cool completely for 40 minutes.

For the filling

  • To make the filling, simply beat the mascarpone with the heavy cream in a mixer for 5 minutes.

For the whipped cream

  • Beat all of the ingredients until you create a whipped cream that has the consistency of yogurt.

To assemble

  • Drain the strawberries and reserve the juices.
  • Level the cakes with a serrated knife if needed. Brush half of the juice over the cakes.
  • Place one cake on a serving platter and spread ¾ of the filling over it. Arrange half of the strawberries over it and cover with the remaining filling.
  • Top with the second layer of cake, soaked side down.
  • Cover the whole cake with whipped cream.
  • Decorate with the remaining strawberries. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve.
