You've probably seen some anime where the character goes to a beautiful pastry shop and chooses a white cake filled with strawberries. This is one of the most appreciated cakes by the Japanese and has an extremely light and refreshing flavor.
This cake should be served chilled and goes with both cold and hot drinks, especially black tea. Although the best seller is strawberry, you can add other fruits, such as apple, melon, manga or even persimmon (many Japanese cookbooks recommend persimmon for the winter).
This cake, as it is a refrigerator cake, is valid for 3 days, as the fruit may start to deteriorate after that time. This cake is made in 3 steps, just wait for the doughs and syrups to cool to assemble the cake, so it doesn't run the risk of spoiling quickly.
The cake can also be made with other ingredients like nest milk. In fact, this cake is so common around the world that there are thousands of versions of this recipe with strawberry cake inside and out.
