Yummy Creamy Sponge Cake With Berries

Sponge:

4 egg

150 g castor sugar

100 g wheat flour

50 gr potato  starch

1 1/2 baking powder

Whip sugar and eggs well, sift in wheat flour, starch and baking powder and mix well. Take a 25 cm diameter (~10″) spring-form pan, grease it slightly, put a circular piece of baking paper just in the bottom. Pour the batter in and bake for 10-12 min in 230 °C (450 °F) oven – best is to check with a wooden stick (if it comes out clean – it is ready). For two layer cake take two spring-form pans and divide the batter, bake in 230 °C for 8-10 min, check with the wooden stick whether it is baked. Slightly cool in the pan, then go around with the knife or thin wooden spatula and carefully remove from the pan, take of the backing paper and cool completely on the rack.

Cream:

250 g strawberries

150 g blueberries

2 tbsp castor sugar

1 1/2 tsp lemon juice

6 sheets of food gelatin

3 dl (300 ml) heavy cream

Whip the cold cream until soft peaks appear and put to the fridge. Pure 3/4 of strawberries and blueberries, put the rest aside for decoration. Add sugar and lemon juice into berry pure. Put sheets of gelatin into a pot with a cold water, keep there for 5 min or until softened. Remove almost all the water, leave just about 1/3 of a cup. Put the pot to heat, do not let it boil – remove just after gelatine starts to dissolve. Stir constantly. After gelatine dissolved add it into the berry pure. With spatula gently and slow stir the berry pure into the whipped cream. Put the sponge on the serving plate and spread the cream with spatula on the top and sides of the sponge. If making a two layer cake – put some cream in between the layers. Try to work as fast as you can after the gelatin is added to the berry pure – cream must be still very soft as you spread it on the sponge. Put in to the fridge for at least 3-5 hours or overnight. Decorate before serving with the rest of berries (you may halve the strawberries if desired).  Enjoy!
