Strawberry Shortcake from Scratch

Hello!  It's been warming up a bit this week to around -18C. 
So I thought that something fun for snack was in order. 

My daughter was looking through her recipes for "non-chocolate" treats. 
Yes, we do try to eat other kinds of treats. 

She found a recipe for sponge cake, and I had just bought a container of strawberries...and there was whipping cream in the was meant to be!

The sponge cake is so super easy to make and HERE is the recipe.
It only takes four ingredients and is super easy. 
Above you can see little indents in the top...well that is just me touching it to see if it bounces back...don't do that.  This cake isn't like most cakes. :) 
Oh, and to mention that you only have to lay a cut out sheet of parchment paper on the bottom of the pans, no greasing needed. 

My family enjoyed the treat, and it cheered us all with the spring flavour and colour.  

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Ooooohh! Looks SO good! I have watched the Great British Baking Show a lot and they always talk about the perfect sponge lol. I thought there would be a lot more to it so definitely giving this a try. Thanks for providing the recipe. I'm sure your family enjoyed this, especially in the winter! It's funny, berries have been quite inexpensive around here this winter. I just made a cobbler with blackberries, strawberries and blueberries that was wonderful. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe (and I'll try not to make dents in it haha!)

Yummy... Strawberry Shortcake!! One of my favorites other than chocolate! ;)

I'll be baking a lemon cake this week as my son's birthday is fast approaching.

I hope you enjoy a cozy filled weekend, Jennifer!!
