Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. Gently stir strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl; chill.
  3. Combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl; cut in butter with a knife or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk milk and egg yolks in a bowl, then stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Divide in half and pat into prepared cake pans.
  4. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large bowl. Continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites should form a sharp peak that holds its shape. Spread over dough; sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack; cool completely.
  6. Place one cake layer on a large serving plate; spread with half the whipped cream, spoon half the strawberries over cream. Repeat layers; garnish with mint.

wanted to love it but the cake part was just too dry for me... hubby and kid also weren't fans and mostly ate around the cake. maybe i screwed sumthin up as I've only made it once but just wasn't a hit for us

This was so delicious!! I loved what the egg whites and sugar did for the cake! I made my own whipped cream and cut back on some of the sugar (only used 1/4 cup with the strawberries and 1/8 for the top of the dough) and it was delicious! I also substituted cinnamon for nutmeg, since I didn't have any. Will definitely make again!
