Ever since I’ve first tried this awesome cake (my aunt made it about 10 years ago) I cannot get over how tasty it is. And I’m not the biggest cake fan, but this is just one of those cakes I could eat like all the time.
It has simple, not too sweet texture, and it’s one of the easiest-to-make-without-having to bake cakes. It has kinda become an Easter tradition in our home, and this year wasn’t an exception.
The cake on the picture above is for 10-12 people; we didn’t have a bigger plate for a bigger cake, which is why we made two separate cakes, ending up with around 20-24 pieces.
And did I say how easy it is to make it? Yeah, I did. So, the ingredients are on the picture below.
First, I’ve cut the banana and strawberries into small pieces and I’ve prepared the whipped cream. Then, I’ve placed the first layer of ladyfinger biscuits on the plate. I usually soak the ladyfinger biscuits in milk in order for them to soften, before placing them on the plate. When that’s all done, I’ve spread the heavy whipped cream on the biscuits, and then I’ve put the small fruit pieces on top of the cream. That should look something like on this picture below.
Once I’ve scattered the pieces of fruit on top, I’ve spread them over with whipped cream again, before moving on to the second layer of lady fingers. Now, I’ve just repeated the previous steps. So, basically, second layer – ladyfinger biscuits, then whipped cream, then fruit pieces, and then again, whipped cream.
And of course, since sprinkles make all of the sweet goods look way way better, why not do that with this cake? All in favor!
Also, let’s be clear. When cutting the pieces of cake, they don’t exactly look all perfect; they can be messy and kinda falling apart as you cut them, so you’ll need to kinda gently get them back in their place. One way to avoid this (even though not entirely), is by keeping the cake in the refrigerator (in my case, the cake usually spends the night in the fridge) right up until you intent to serve it. It’ll be more firm and it can be cut easier without falling apart completely, leaving you with no cake at all. And if you promised a cake, you must deliver, it’s a cake-promise, not a joke. So, keep it in the fridge!
Mkay, guys. Have a nice cake!
