Strawberry Cake with Whipped Cream and Meringue.

I absolutely love this cake. Every time i make it during parties,even skinny girls on diet ask me for another piece.

But if you really look at ingredients it has  mostly eggs and strawberries, with not much sugar and flour, sweet omelette with strawberries, basically.

If you are familiar with making sponge cakes, you can make it your usual way. My oven has been playing up lately (due to overloading) and instead of one large sponge cake, i had to make two, but still got my four layers.

You will need to make a sponge the day before, as it needs to sit for at least 8 hours ( make sure you cover it with kitchen towel). So,it takes two days to make the cake. Even though, it looks complicated, it is not hard to make.

I have no particular reason of making this cake today, i have lots of strawberries and i love it.

Ingredients:

For the sponge:

Eggs- 5

Sugar- 200 g

Flour- 100 g

Egg whites- 3
