TWD- French Strawberry Cake

This week’s TWD is for French Strawberry cake, a light genoise cake filled with macerated strawberries and covered in cream. The recipe is very straightforward and easy. 

“A génoise cake is an Italian sponge cake named after the city of Genoa and closely associated with Italian and French cuisine that does not use any chemical leavening, instead using air suspended in the batterduring mixing to give volume to the cake.”

It’s baked in a single layer, and then torted:

There’s nothing I dislike more than torting a cake. I never do it if I can help it. If I want layers, I’m more than happy to bake them in separate pans. I only got two layers from my attempt to tort this.

This was delicious and fresh- perfect for a summer BBQ! Check out  Sophia of Sophia’s Sweets and Allison of Sleep Love Think Dine for the recipe!

    It's funny that you hate torting, considering how many layer cakes you make! You must have a lot of cake pans, or a lot of patience. 🙂 I actually really like it, but I think it's my OCD side that takes great pleasure in being slow and meticulous.
