My best friend’s birthday today and decide to make by his own a delicious and very beautiful strawberry jam cake to celebrate his new “level up” Happy birthday my friend dhmostenis .

In web we found many recipes but I think this one from akis petretzikis is the most easy and tasty I found . Let’s take a look .

Ingredients


For the jam
* 500 g strawberries
* 125 g granulated sugar
* salt
* 2 tablespoon(s) brandy

For the cream cheese filling
* 400 g cream cheese, chilled
* 125 g granulated sugar
* 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
* 700 g heavy cream 35%

To assemble
* 500 g strawberries
* 400 g sponge cake, vanilla
To serve
* mint leaves
* icing sugar
Method

For the strawberry jam
* Remove the stems and quarter the strawberries.
* Transfer to a pan and add the sugar, salt and cognac.
* Place pan over medium heat and cook for 8-10 minutes, until the jam thickens.
* Remove from heat and allow to cool.

For the cream cheese filling
* Beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract in a mixer for 5 minutes on high speed, until the sugar dissolves.
* Add the heavy cream and beat for 1-2 minutes until the cream thickens.

To assemble
* Place a 20 cm plate over the sponge cake and cut into a circular shape. Do not discard the parts you cut away.
* Cut 3 strips of parchment paper and place them on a serving platter in the shape of a triangle. This will help keep the serving plate clean while assembling the cake.
*  Place the first layer of sponge cake on the serving platter.
* Cut the remaining strawberries in half and place all around the edges of the sponge cake like a ring.
* Spread half of the jam in the center.
* Cover with 1/3 of the cream cheese filling, spreading carefully. Add 2-3 pieces of strawberries to help stabilize the next layer of sponge cake.
* Add the second layer of sponge cake and follow the same process.
* Then add the third layer of sponge cake and spread the final 1/3 of the cream cheese filling.
* Break up the leftover pieces of sponge cake and spread them over the cream.
* Top with the remaining strawberries and serve with mint leaves and icing sugar.
