This is how the strawberry cake is made
Here’s how it works: Preheat the oven to 200 grams (top and bottom heat). Line a springform pan (26 cm) with parchment paper. Tip: If you wet the parchment paper and wrinkle it, it is easier to shape afterwards.
Wash, trim and halve the strawberries. Sprinkle strawberries with sugar and set aside.
For the dough, mix flour and baking powder in a bowl. Add sugar, vanilla sugar, eggs, sunflower oil and salt and mix with the hand mixer to a smooth batter. Pour the batter into the springform pan, even out and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Do a chopstick test: stick a toothpick in the cake. It is done when nothing is stuck on the chopstick. Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool.
