Japanese Strawberry Shortcake

Most of the time, I love to try new recipes or making new kinds of sweets, but I still have my favorite kinds of cake that I can make it again and again.  

Japanese Strawberry Shortcake is one of them, I made it many, many times before (and I will make it again in the future, haha). This basic cake made from sponge cake, whipped cream, and fresh strawberry is so simple and delicious.
 But I still can play with it, by changing the sponge cake recipes, using chiffon cake instead, using different kinds of liquor and etc. ^^

I don't know how many recipes for Strawberry Shortcake that I have in my blog, but I'm sure that this recipe is not the final.


The sponge cake that I used in this Strawberry Shortcake is very soft, and because of its softness, you need to be careful when slicing it into pieces. I baked it in a 16 cm pan as I wanted to get a higher cake (so I can slice it into 3 and have a lot of cream and strawberry in every slice!)

Some people don't like sponge cake because they think that it's dry. But you will get a delicious and moist sponge cake by sprinkle a lot of syrup over the cake ^^. I use Kirsch for this time, but you can use other kinds of liquor (or omit it) too.
