Back when I was working 9 til 5 – or as those working in marketing will know, more like 9 till 9…. my friend and I often spoke of our desire to spend a sunny afternoon out in the Cotwolds. I had worked in the area for nearly three years but had very little time to ever explore.
The strawberries and cream sponge cake has been my signature bake for a very long time.
If the truth be told it’s probably the only thing I can bake (but lets not dwell on that for now!).
Whenever I’ve started a new job, wanted to cheer up a friend or celebrate a birthday I’ve whipped this one up. Quite literally. It’s an easy bake really and all the nicer when I use eggs from my beloved chickens, Mel and Ginger.
A couple of months ago my dear friend Sarah, who writes a blog called Taming Twins, made a beautiful birthday cake for her mum and when I spotted it I was inspired to invigorate this old favourite of mine. Oh yes I went totally wild, and added even more delicious cream, and juicy strawberries.
So here’s my recipe and a few photos too. I hope you enjoy it:
