This is a homemade European spongecake topped with whipped cream and sweet strawberries. To make the bottom high and fluffy it's important to mix the eggs and sugar a few minutes with an electrical mixer, instead of adding more baking soda as for the American sponge cakes. You can add chocolate on the sides of the cake to give a more luxury touch.
This is a homemade cake with a different type of bottom as it is made with almond pastry. This cake will not be a favorite among kids, it is meant for adults as the coffee taste comes out quite nicely. Though even if you are not a fan of coffee, the mix with almond gives it a lovely touch. It is perfect to serve this cake after a romantic couple dinner or when there will be only adults at the party !
A sausage sauce with a big sausage called falukorv in Swedish. You can take whatever sausage you like as long as it is not to strong, cervelat sausage is a good option. A simple weekday food.
