Wimbledon Cake

So, despite the grim weather we've been having here in the UK, there's no denying that 'Wimbledon' is the word on everyone's lips at the moment. Last weekend, when the sun was still shining, I decided to use up the masses of strawberries our plant in the garden has been producing and make this yummy dessert.

The cake is simply a sponge with whipped cream, passion fruit drizzled on the inside layer, and strawberries on both layers. The recipe was taken from Mary Berry's Complete Cookbook, and Berry being the legend she is, I had high expectations. Although those expectations were not quite met - the sponges didn't rise - I think I was at fault; the cake tins I used were probably a little wide.

Still, it tasted light and disappeared fast!



  1. Mary Berry is the love of my life!

  2. Hehe she is a star! Speaking of which - or rather, whom - I hope The Great British Bake-Off returns to TV soon...
