Mini Strawberry Cake

Makes 1 Mini Cake

Strawberries were cheap in the market so I bought a box. It has been quite a while that I wanted to make home made strawberry cake and I had tried 2-3 times but I wasn’t satisfied with the cake, I was looking for something but I don’t what?!?! Anyway, at that time I had the desire for some chiffon cake. So, I say to my self why don’t we combine the recipe. We take the chiffon cake recipe and add some cream and strawberries…I prepared all the stuff on the table and baked the chiffon cake, clean the burnt part. Combined it all together and with the left overs cream, I colored it pinky because I ran out of ideas. I put it in the fridge for a while and served it as dinner dessert…and OMG..my eyes almost popped out of joyfullness! I was very happy, this was the recipe I was looking for. You see, every festive day, we usually get special cake from one of the biggest national catering company. I loved it, it was white cream cake with assorted fruits or black forest. In my entire life, I can say, nobody can beat the wonderful taste that they can produce. It was light, fluffy and when you swallow it is like tickling your throat making you want to eat more and more. I found it! By accident , because the recipe requires cream of tartar but I haven’t got any so I replace it with salt. Have a go and try it!

2 ¼ cup cake flour
1 ½ cup sugar
