Strawberry Yoghurt Layer Cake - Perfect for Summer

With all of the great weather we've been having recently I have been in the mood to eat strawberries.

This cake is deliciously summery, perfect for a summers evening.

The recipe below is enough for one layer, just double up all of the ingredients to make the double layered cake - I warn you though, it's huge!






Ingredients
For the Cake:
90g strawberry yoghurt
75g Stork
150g caster sugar
3 eggs 
150g self raising flour

For filling and decoration:
200g strawberries
175g caster sugar 
200ml double cream
3 tablespoons jam




Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan. Grease and line a round cake tin.
  2. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour the batter into the tin and bake in the oven for 25-30 mins or until it passes the skewer test. After 5 minutes turn the cake out onto a wire rack and leave to cool.
  3. One cooled smother in strawberry jam, whipped cream and decorate with strawberries. If you are making the larger, layer cake add the second sponge to the top and decorate with strawberries.
