How to make it

  • Prep - time includes putting the cake together
  • Pre-heat oven to 350F (180C). Grease & flour 2 - 8 in round or square cake pans.
  • Stir together the sugar & the lemon rind
  • Beat egg yolks until light, then gradually beat in sugar.
  • When very thick & creamy, stir in boiling water & lemon juice
  • Sift flour twice, then sift over top of egg yolk mixture. Fold in lightly but thoroughly.
  • Whip egg whites until thick & fold in lightly
  • Divide mixture evenly between pans.
  • Bake for 30 mins or until top springs back when touched.
  • Turn out on wire racks to cool.
  • Whip cream with vanilla & icing sugar until stiff
  • Chop most of the strawberries & fold through 3/4 of the cream. Save the remaining cream & some whole strawberries for decoration.
  • With a long, sharp knife, carefully cut cakes across the center, making 4 layers.
  • Sandwich layers together with the strawberry/cream mixture
  • Pipe remaining cream in a lattice pattern over the top & decorate with the remaining strawberries

    Hammer on the other hand - you're a woman every woman in America should look up to that's for sure. A pot in one hand, while the other holds a hammer.

    Noteworthy is you're ability to cook. I am in the process to copy and paste some of your scrumcious recipes, and thank you for being gracious to share.
