Strawberry & Mascarpone Swirl Cake

Looking for a low-key but super fresh and delish birthday cake idea? Well here it is!!!! This cake has been the go-to dessert for birthdays in my family and it will blow your mind how easy it is!

INGREDIENTS:

(sponge first)

  • 5 eggs (divided in yolks and whites)
  • 70gr sugar
  • 70gr veg oil
  • 50gr cornstarch
  • Lime zest

(Filling)

  • 250gr mascarpone cheese
  • 120gr greek yoghurt
  • 150gr whipping cream
  • Lime zest
  • 1tbsp sugar
  • (Decoration)
    • 250gr whipping cream
      1tbsp caster sugar
      2 boxes of Strawberries
  • So let’s start by preheating the oven at 180C. In a bowl place eggs white and sugar and whip it up till stiff and shiny. Slowly add the yolks one by one, then the oil and at last the sieved cornstarch! Line with baking paper a flat baking tray and spread the mix! Bake for 10-13 mins. Once it’s out of the oven let it rest for just 2-3 mins then roll it into a cloth otherwise if we cool it down flat it will break once we fill it and roll it up!
  • it’s FILLING tiiiiiime! Place all the ingredients in a bowl and whip it with a whisk till stiff! What I did is cut the strawberries, keep the pretty ones for the decoration and mince very finely the rest and add it to the cheese filling, no waste in this house!
  • To decorate I whipped up some cream with a lil sugar, covered the swirl with a palet knife and then add the strawberries all in different shapes to cover the cake just like a mosaic, of course there are thousand different decorations you can do, but this is fail proof and doesn’t need any professional equipment!
