Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°. Line bottoms of two greased 8-in. round baking pans with parchment paper; grease paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, beating well. Beat in vanilla.
  3. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Transfer to prepared pans.
  4. With clean beaters, beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Add remaining sugar, beating on high until sugar is dissolved. Continue beating until soft peaks form. Spread over batter in pans.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pans on wire racks. (Cake layers will be thin.)
  6. In a large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Loosen edges of cakes from pans with a knife. Carefully remove one cake to a serving plate, meringue side up.
  7. Arrange sliced strawberries over top; sprinkle with sugar. Gently spread with half of the whipped cream. Top with remaining cake layer, meringue side up; spread with remaining whipped cream. Top with whole strawberries. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 12 servings.

This is my new favorite dessert. It's quick, easy, incredibly delicious, and a stunning crowd-pleaser!

Although this took a little time to make it was worth every minute. It took me back to when I was a child and strawberries were in season, I would come home for dinner and then Mom would bring a dessert made with fresh berries and we would all eat way more than we should have. Thank you Cathy for this great recipe, everyone that ate it loved it.

Very easy to make and looks spectacular.

Make sure to follow the instructions about greasing the pan and the parchment paper - the cake is thin and needs to be able to get out of the pan easily. We added some dissolved unflavored gelatine to the whipped cream to help it stand up in hot weather. Great recipe for when strawberries are abounding!

MY REVIEW

We had guests over for dinner last week and I decided to try this recipe for dessert. I was very pleased with the results. It was not difficult to make and the taste was amazing! I enjoyed that it wasn't too sweet, and that I had the ingredients on hand to make. It was a hit with everyone at the dinner table, especially my 8 year old son.
