Featherlite Strawberry Sponge Cake

Strawberry sponge cake is one of my favorite summer fruit cakes! It is SO EASY, and I almost always have all the ingredients I need at home. And if you don’t have the strawberries or don’t like them, you can easily substitute them for raspberries, red or black currant, or forest fruit. It also works well with frozen berries.

I am feasting on strawberries for the past two weeks already, thinking about how to prepare the next bowl. Hey, What about a strawberry sponge cake?! That is easy!!

How to make the Strawberry Sponge Cake

Time needed: 45 minutes.

Ingredients list

8.8 oz (250 g) powdered / confectioners sugar
1 package (20 g) vanilla flavored sugar or dash of vanilla extract
3 eggs
10.6 oz (300 g) all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup (250 ml) whipping cream
a bowl of strawberries (or raspberries, red or black currant or forest fruit) fresh or frozen

  1. Whip the Base (5 min)

    Put the powdered sugar and vanilla sugar in a mixing bowl with the eggs. Whip on medium speed for about 5 minutes until the mixture turns fluffy and pale.Whipped sugar and eggs

  2. Preheat the Oven

    Don’t forget to turn on your oven ahead, and preheat it to 320°F or 160°C.

  3. Line the Baking Pan

    I am using a standard 9×13″ deep baking pan. Line it with baking paper, aluminum foil or you can butter it and sprinkle the inside with coarse flour. But I know it is hard to get in the US, so the paper works just fine.

  4. Prepare your Fruits

    Clean and cut your fruit if needed.

  5. Finish the Batter (5 min)

    Gradually incorporate the flour mixed with baking powder and the whipping cream. Take your time, and add a couple of tablespoons of flour and a dash of cream at a time. It might take another 5 minutes. The batter should be on the thicker side but not too stiff! If you need to, add a little more cream or even milk.Incorporate the flour and whipping cream

  6. Fill the Pan

    Fill the lined pan with the batter and spread it evenly.Spread the batter in the pan

  7. Sprinkle with Fruit

    Top the cake with berries of your choice. Fresh or frozen.Top the strawberry Sponge Cake

  8. Bake

    Put in the preheated oven and bake at (320°F/ 160°C) for about 30-35 minutes. Test if the cake is done by piercing it with a wooden toothpick or skewer. It should come out clean… the batter should not stick to it.Testing Strawberry Sponge Cake

  9. Serve and Enjoy!

    Let the cake cool down and serve lightly dusted with powdered sugar. I hope your cake will come out deliciously moist and fluffy as it should. A perfect companion for afternoon tea or coffee in the garden… Enjoy!Strawberry Sponge Cake
