Strawberry shortcake is a very famous dessert in Japan. I lived in Japan for nearly 7 years and this has became my most favorite dessert. After moving back to Australia I really missed eating the cake. The cake is sold in some patisseries in Australia. However; I wanted to learn to make it myself. The original recipe requires cake flour, which isn't available here. I tried it with self raising flour. After several attempts I finally got everything right. I wanted to share the recipe with you guys. If you like it please try this mouthwatering dessert at home.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 8-10 people

Ingredients

Self raising flour 2 cups (sifted)
4 eggs ( at room temperature)
100 grams of butter
1 1/2 cups of Sugar
1 cup of milk
1 punnet of strawberries ( you can add more if you wish to)
600 ml of thickened cream ( you can use less, depending on your taste)
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup hot water

Method

The Cake
Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
Using an electric mixer beat eggs and sugar until the mixture is very pale and increases in volume.
Melt butter. Add melted butter, milk and flour to the mixture.
At this stage you can use a balloon whisk to mix. But, I used an electric mixture. I beat the mixture for one minute.
Spray oil onto a medium sized cake tin. Pour the mixture in to it and put it in the oven.
Bake for 45 minutes or until cooked. You can place a skewer in to the cake to check if it's cooked.

Sugar Syrup

Add 2 tablespoon of sugar to 1/2 cup hot water

Decorating the cake

While the cake is baking in the oven cut strawberries into half and leave some whole strawberries for decoration.
Beat thickened cream until it forms a soft peak.
When the cake is done, let it cool. Place a plate on the top of the cake tin and slowly turn in upside down. This will allow the cake to come off from the tin.
Cut the cake into half. Make sure both layers have equal thickness.
Brush both layers with sugar syrup.
Spread whipped cream on the bottom layer and place half strawberries on top of it. Put another layer of whipped cream on the strawberries if you wish to.
Cover the cake with whipped cream and spread the cream evenly to make the cake look nice.
Decorate the top of the cake with whole strawberries.
Keep the cake chilled until the time of serving.
