Strawberry Shortcake Cake

Strawberry Shortcake Cake

Beat the egg whites and remove to a separate bowl. Then, whisk the yolks and sugar until light and fluffy and ribbons form.

Alternate adding and folding in the sifted dry ingredients and whipped egg whites until completely incorporated.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

Bake the sponge cake until it has risen and is a light golden color. Cool completely.

Make the strawberry simple syrup while the cake is cooling by combining strawberries, water, and sugar over medium heat.

Use a serrated knife to cut the sponge cake into three even layers.

Brush the simple syrup onto the first cake layer the whole way to the edges.

Make the whipped cream and spread some on top of the cake layer, spreading it to the edges.

Add sliced strawberries over top of the whipped cream.

Cover the strawberries with another layer of whipped cream, then continue with the next cake layer.

Cover the entire cake with whipped cream and swirl in some strawberry jam.
