Every time I make this strawberry French cake, I can’t stop saying how delicious it is. The cooked strawberries still taste so fresh. They are coated with the flavoursome vanilla sponge and the lot tastes like a summer afternoon. The beauty of this cake also is, that is couldn’t be easier! One bowl, one tin, this will be all you’ll need.

I serve it warm with cream on top and some extra strawberries. When Luke had his first bite, he couldn’t believe it haha! This is definitely a classic summer cake that you’ll make over and over again 🙂 Whilst the strawberries are red and sweet.

You can also make in onto a round tiered cake ( second photo ) using 2 standards 20 cm tins. Whip some cream and fill it with extra strawberries in the middle and on the top.

    Hi Manon,
    I just have a quick question on this strawberry French cake recipe.
    I’m making this cake for a friend’s birthday and if I wanted to use two 20 cm round tins, would the bake time be the same or less since we are dividing the mixture into two.
    Thank you so much!
