Its three-layer-effect is bound to attract plenty of attention, while the likes of Greek yoghurt and low fat crème fraiche makes this a slightly less fattening treat than the usual options. Guess what we'll be baking tomorrow?
- 300g self-raising flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 210g golden caster sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 260g Greek yogurt
- 3 drops vanilla extract
- 40g butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon semi-skimmed milk
- 3 tablespoons rapeseed oil
- 9 tablespoons Stute no sugar added strawberry jam
- 350ml low fat creme fraiche
- 400g strawberries
Method1 Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Lightly oil 3 x 18cm sandwich cake tins and line the bottom with greaseproof paper. Tip the flour, baking powder and sugar into a mixing bowl and combine.
2 In a separate bowl beat the eggs, add the yogurt, vanilla, melted butter, milk and oil and stir until smooth. Tip this into the dry mixture and gently fold with a large metal spoon until well combined.
3 Divide the mixture between the tins and level the tops. Bake for 20 minutes until they’re risen and spring back when you gently press the tops.
4 Let the cakes cool for a few minutes in the tins, then turn them out, peel off the greaseproof paper and leave to cool on a cooling rack till completely cold.
5 While the cakes are cooling, reserve a handful of strawberries for decoration and slice the rest.
6 When you’re ready to fill the cake, upturn one of the layers onto a serving plate or cake stand and spread over ⅓ of the jam. Gently spread ⅓ of the creme fraiche on top of that and lay over ½ of the strawberry slices. Gently place the next cake layer on top and repeat with the jam, creme fraiche and strawberries.
7 Add the final cake, spread with the remaining creme fraiche and pile on the reserved strawberries. Heat the remaining jam in the microwave for 30 seconds (or in a small saucepan) until its runny then drizzle over the top of the cake.
