About this recipe:

This stunning yet easy to make cake uses Potato Flour to bake the lightest of sponges which are sandwiched together with a cream and strawberry filling. It is just as good made with raspberries or other soft fruit. This type of cake is traditionally baked in Scandinavian countries for birthdays and other celebratory occasions where it is known as Bløtekake. The name derives from the way the light sponge layers absorb the rich fruity filling.
