For the sponge cake

  • 1 cupAll-purpose flour
  • ½ cup – Granulated sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ cup – Milk
  • 1 tsp – Baking powder
  • ½ cup – Unsalted butter
  • ¼ tsp – Salt
  • 1 tspVanilla extract


For the assembly

  1. 1 cup – Whipped cream
  2. 1 cup – Chopped fruits of your choice
  3. ¼  cup – Granulated sugar
  4. 1 tsp – Lemon juice


For the sponge cake

  1. Take the eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl and whisk it until it is light, pale and fluffy
  2. In a separate bowl, mix in all the remaining ingredients thoroughly.
  3. Now very gently, mix the batter with the whipped egg and sugar mixture, folding just until everything is combined.
  4. Pour this in a greased and lined cake pan and bake it in a preheated oven for around 15-20 minutes at 350°F until the top turns golden and a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  5. Let it cool completely.


For the assembly

  1. To macerate the fruits, take the chopped fruits into a bowl and add the sugar and lemon juice. Mix it gently until evenly mixed. Let this sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Cut the sponge cake into pieces and make an even layer of the sponge at the bottom of the jar/dish.
  3. Now add some whipped cream and spread it evenly on top of the sponge layer.
  4. Top the cream with a layer of macerated fruits.
  5. Now repeat this same process, one layer of the sponge cake, macerated fruits and top it up with some cream.
  6. Let it cool in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving.
