Amazing Dessert Recipe
½ c butter
1 ½ c sugar
4 eggs, separated
2/3 c sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 Qt sliced strawberries
¼ tsp salt
½ c chopped nuts
1 c heavy cream
Cream butter + 1/2 c sugar, gradually beat in egg yolks. Sift flour, baking powder, salt. Add creamed mixture, mix well. Spread over bottom of two greased, floured 8″ round pans (will be thin layer) wax or parchment paper on the bottom is very helpful.
Beat egg whites until foamy; gradually add 1c sugar until soft peaks form. Spread over cake batter. Sprinkle nuts over meringue mixture.
Bake at 350 until lightly brown (25-30 min). Cool on rack.
Whip the 1 cup cream with some sugar and a little vanilla.
Fill with sweetened whipped cream and fresh sliced strawberries.
This is a pretty easy recipe although a little delicate to work with. The cake meringue recipe is GREAT and can be easily used along with chocolate and other various filling and nut combinations. The cakes is moist and buttery while the meringue is sweet and crispy so they go together well.
