DANISH HEIRLOOM LAYER CAKE
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 cup of sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1-1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 pint whipping cream - whipped and sweetened with 1 tbsp icing sugar
- 1 - 2 pounds sliced slightly sweetened strawberries - or fruit of choice
In a medium bowl, mix together with a whisk or wooden spoon, yogurt, sugar, sour cream, egg, salt, baking soda, baking powder. Add flour and vanilla.
Grease or spray 3- 9" layer pans and divide batter evenly between pans. (the batter will see skimp - but spread as evenly as you can with a spatula in each pan - layers will rise on baking)
Bake at 350 oven. Bake for only 10 - 12 minutes - till Very Light Brown. Cool on racks - and remove from pans with a plastic spatula onto racks to finish cooling as soon as you can handle the cakes.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT over bake!!! If not using immediately - put wax paper between layers, cover with plastic and refrigerate or freeze till ready to assemble cake.
Layer cake layers: 1/3 sweetened whipped cream and 1/2 sweetened sliced strawberries or fruit of choice - then 1/3 sweetened whipped cream. Decorate with berries.
This cake tastes even better the next day and the day after that - if there is any left!! Trick is NOT TO OVER BAKE THE LAYERS. - or it will be dry and not nice and moist.
