Scale

For the cake

  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1&1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 t of almond extract
  • 2 t of baking powder
  • 1&1/4 cup of all-purpose flour

Strawberry Jello Sauce

  • 1 lb. of sliced strawberries
  • 2 T of sugar
  • 3 T of strawberry jello
  • 1 cup of water

Don’t forget the whipped cream! If you want to make your own, you’ll need:

**Of course, you can always cheat and grab some whipped cream in a can

  • 1&1/2 cups of chilled Heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  • Beat the 4 eggs until light and fluffy, add the sugar and continue to beat until sugar is mixed in, add the almond extract, and mix in
  • In a separate bowl, mix the baking powder and flour
  • Gradually add the flour mixture to the egg mixture stirring it in as you go
  • Pour this into a greased 10-inch spring pan
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes – be sure to insert a toothpick in the middle to check for doneness (if the toothpick comes out clean and dry, you are good to go
  • Cool off for 1 hour
  • In the meantime, grab a large bowl, and slice your strawberries
  • Sprinkle the granulated sugar on the strawberries – this creates a yummy sugary juice
  • Now, take a saucepan and heat 1 cup of water, dissolve the 3 Tbsp. of strawberry jello. Let cool
  • Pour over the strawberries
  • If you are making the whipped cream, pour the heavy whipping cream into a bowl and beat on high until the cream is forming peaks, add the powdered sugar, and beat some more to mix in

Assembling:

  • I used these cute little mason jars – any bowl or glass will do
  • Cut the sponge cake into cubes, and place enough in the bottom of the bowl or glass
  • Add some yummy strawberries to the top of that, making sure to soak some sponge cake with the juice
  • Add whipped cream

Notes

*Easily change the flavor of your sauce by switching out the Jell-O flavor with something like lemon-flavored for another delicious flavor

*Want to make a cake, just cut the cake in half to make layers. Layer the sponge cake with whipped topping in the middle. Serve with fruit sauce
