  • About

The cake is traditionally made with a fatless sponge cake. It has three layers at least and is filled with an egg enriched cream (similar to confectioners’ custard) as well as sweet strawberries. Although I love confectioner’s custard, I decided to lighten my recipe up after some advice from a Swedish friend and I used Chantilly cream for my filling. I also added some fresh raspberries to my cake; however, I feel that most Swedes will forgive me as they are a nation of berry lovers.
