Strawberry and Orange Cake with Meringue Icing




I like to keep my ingredients seasonal so that my cakes are as tasty as they can be. Right now strawberries are at their peak - red, sweet and juicy, so what could be better than a cake full of them? I also added some fresh vanilla bean seeds and some orange zest to the mixture. The result is a moist and light cake with a very fruity character.

I made 2 this morning so there is one going spare if anyone would like to order it!

Ingredients:

Butter
Sugar
Organic eggs
Vanilla seeds
Flour
Orange zest
Orange juice
Strawberries

Icing:

Egg whites
sugar
Cream of tartar
