  1. The filling was delicious but my sponge cake base was the texture of an omelette. When I make this next time I will opt for a regular sponge or biscuit base.

  2. Could i make this with strawberries instead using puree strawberries and strawberry extract instead of vanilla and 1 lemon but all other ingredients as per recipe would it turn out ok ??
    Thanks

  3. This is a fabulously yummy cake. I just made it for New Year’s Eve to great applause.

    It is so light, with a wonderful creamy texture. The mix of whipped cream and yogurt is brilliant.

    The perfect dessert with only 2 TBSp of flour!

    Thank you Tamara and a very Happy New Year to you
