- Salt (1 tea spoon)
- 2 eggs
- Flower 80 grams
- Baking powder (1 tea spoon)
- Milk (4 regular spoons)
For the glaze:
- Sugar (3 regular spoons)
- Water 500ml (warm)
- Powder sugar 100 grams
- Gelatin 1 small package
- Strawberry juice (1 cup, can be from canned strawberries)
Oke here we go..
First prepare the baking cake-form by laying baking paper on it. Take a pan and heat the cocos up without any water or fat.. so it dries out good.
Starting with the base...
Take a bowl and add the 80grams of butter, 80grams of sugar, the vanilla powder and the salt. Mix this with the mixer until you get one smooth mixture.
Take a secondary bowl and mix there the eggs with the mixer.
Take a third bowl and add there the flower and the baking powder, mix them really good by hand. Add the cocos and mix it again by hand.
Now mix all the 3 bowls together in 1 bowl with the mixer on regular speed. Mix it for 3-4 minutes.
Now poor this mixture into the baking form and bake this in a pre-heated oven at 175 degrees celcius for 20 minutes.
Making the glaze...
Take all the strawberries and cut them into slices.
Take a bowl and put the strawberris in there, now add the 3 spoons of sugar.
Take strawberry juice and add the powder sugar in it, mix it with a spoon, add a bit of water into the mix if you feel like there is too much powder sugar compared to the juice.
Now put the gelatin in a cup with water, put this in the microwave for about 30sec and stear it up with a spoon. Let it rest for about 10minutes and mix it together with the strawberry juice.
This last mixture you should put in the fridge for 30 minutes, stear it up every 5 min while its in the fridge. You will see that its becoming to get jelly.
Finishing the cake...
Take the cake you baked and cover it all with strawberries, just like i did on the picture, there shouldn't be a open spot on the cake. Now carefully poor the gelatin mix all over the cake so it covers all strawberries, this will jelly them in place so your cake doesnt fall apart while serving etc.. also it looks much better this way.
If you have any cocos grates left you can sprinkle some cocos ontop of the cake again, if you don't have any it doesn't matter.
Put the cake in the fridge for another 1 hour. After that it's ready to serve!
Enjoy your Strawberry Cake.
