Strawberry Mascarpone Cake
Total TimePrep: 1 hour + chilling Bake: 30 min. + cooling
This cake was a home-run. The icing was perfectly fine (if forgettable) but the sponge was incredible and paired perfectly with the strawberries. My boyfriend has requested that I try the same sponge with a dark chocolate ganache. I think I'll also try making the batter into cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I find that almond extract and citrus zest flavors are much richer the next day, so I can't wait to try another piece tomorrow!
Made this cake for an Easter dessert. Although it turned out well, and looked pretty, my family were not fond of it. There is very little flavor, and the whipped cream frosting needed to be sweeter for our taste. I will not make this cake again. There were too many steps for an "OK" cake rating.
