How to make it

  • Line the bottom and sides of a 9 or 10'' springform pan with parchment paper making sure the strips of paper for sides are an inch or two above the top rim of the springform.
  • Using a serrated knife carefully slice cake into 2-3'' slices. (you will only need the top and bottom.)
  • Place bottom part of cake into springform.
  • Wash and remove stems from strawberries, pat dry. Slice some of the strawberries in half lengthwise. Place sliced berries on sponge in springform cut side facing outward filling in completely around the outer edge of inside of pan. Fill in with remaining berries stem side down until bottom is covered.

  • Combine lemon juice, sugar and egg yolks in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until warm and sugar is dissolved; whisk in gelatin and heat until gelatin dissolves. (do not boil) Scrape into a large bowl and set aside to cool.

  • In another bowl beat chilled heavy cream until thick but not too stiff.
  • When gelatin mixture is cool and slightly thickened gently fold in the egg whites, then fold in the whipped cream.
  • Pour mousse over the berries in the springform. Place top bit of spongecake over mousse. Cover and chill 2-3 hours.

    My girlfriend made this for me for my birthday because she knows I love Lemon and cake and it was awesome. My girlfriend has celiac disease so she cannot eat anything with gluten in it, so we used Celimix Deluxe White Cake Mix and it worked perfectly. Celimix is a Canadian product so I'm not sure if it's available to all of you, but if you have celiac disease and you love cake, I highly recommend their line cake mixes. I swear you won't be able to tell the difference between their gluten free cake and regular cake, it's that good.
