This layer cake recipe is the perfect way to celebrate seasonal berries, perfect for a picnic or summer celebration. Known as Gräddtårta med Jordgubbar in its native Sweden, this cake is traditionally baked to celebrate Midsummer eve.

The cake is traditionally made with a fatless sponge cake, has three layers at least, all filled with an egg-enriched cream and packed with sweet strawberries.

Although I love custard, the type of filling that is used in this classic Swedish cake, I decided to change my recipe a bit, and I used a simple Chantilly cream for my filling; I also deviated a little and added some fresh raspberries to my cake. I just love raspberries! But, I feel that most Swedes will forgive me, as they are a nation of berry lovers!

Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Line a round cake tin (30cm x 10cm) with baking paper.

Whisk the eggs with the sugar until light and fluffy; mix the dry ingredients together and then gently fold them to the whisked eggs. Add the boiled water and then mix until all amalgamated, but do not over mix. Pour the cake mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until it has risen and is golden brown. Turn out of the tin and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, make the Chantilly cream by whisking the cream, icing sugar and vanilla extract together until the cream holds firm peaks; cover it and store in the fridge until needed.

When the cake is cold, carefully cut it into three slices, and place one slice on a serving plate; spoon a third of the cream over the cake, then add the strawberries and raspberries.

Continue to layer the cake this way, ending with the top which is also decorated with cream, strawberries and raspberries.
