Procedure

To prepare the layer cake with cream and wild strawberries you have to do sponge cake, You can also prepare it one day in advance (as long as you keep it in a cool, dry and well wrapped in plastic wrap): Preheat the oven at 180 degrees.

In a food processor or in a bowl with an electric mixer, working the eggs with the sugar until the mixture will be white and fluffy, tripled in volume. Add the vanilla extract and grated lemon zest, then the sifted flour, stirring gently with a spatula from top to bottom to incorporate all dry ingredients without disassembling the egg. Grease and flour two baking plates and pour the mixture carefully motorhome: Once cooked, you get three discs of bread of Spain.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the sponge dry Spain is not the toothpick test. Allow to cool and store the sponge Spain well wrapped in plastic wrap, in a cool, dry place.

For the syrup, put the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring them to a boil. Cook until the liquid is reduced by two thirds, then add the liqueur (You can also not to put if you don't fancy flavors slightly alcohol) and allow to cool completely.

For the filling cream, work the mascarpone with icing sugar and honey until creamy smooth and shiny. Add vanilla extract. Whip the cream until stiff and incorporate it with mascarpone by gently, using a spatula. Refrigerate until the moment you will stuff the sweet.

Crop from Spain the three disks necessary for loaf cake.

Assembling the cake: Sprinkle the first layer of sponge cake Spain, top part of the cream and mascarpone, then cover with abundant wild strawberries whole or with fresh strawberries cut into small pieces. Cover with the second disk of bread of Spain, wetting and proceed in the same way. Complete with the last layer and wet this too.

Cover the cake on each side with the rest of the cream and, using a spatula or spoon, give the dessert a 'wave' effect. Distribute across the top of the cake strawberries, so that the cake is completely covered. I suggest you start from the Center and move radially outwards. Keep the cake layered with cream and strawberries in the refrigerator and, before serving, dust the surface with a little icing sugar. Bon appétit!

Note

If you prefer, you can only fill the cake with whipped cream and sugared. This, though, It will make it more perishable and will be consumed faster.
