How to Make Christmas Cake

(18cm/7.1" cake pan)
- Sponge Cake -
150g Eggs (5.3 oz)
100g Granulated Sugar (3.5 oz)
90g Cake Flour or Pastry Flour (3.2 oz)
(Use Cake Flour if you can. Pastry flour is fine but Cake Flour is better for its lower protein content.)
15g Unsalted Butter (0.53 oz)
1 tbsp Milk

- Soaking Syrup -
2 tbsp Granulated Sugar
3 tbsp Hot Water
1 tbsp Kirsch - a type of brandy made from fermented cherries, optional

- Toppings -
400ml Whipping Cream with 35% fat (1.7 cups)
3 tbsp Granulated Sugar
450g Strawberries (1.0 oz)
Powdered Sugar

Parchment Paper (bottom): 18.4cm/7.2" diameter
Parchment Paper (side): 6x58cm/2.4"x22.8"
Cake Pan (18cm/7.1" diameter)
Christmas Ornaments

(This is one of the most difficult recipes we introduced, so please follow the instructions thoroughly.)
* Measuring the baking ingredients by weight is absolutely necessary, so make sure to use a proper scale.
* The measurements and whipping time for the batter are critical to making a sponge cake. If they are not accurate, the sponge cake will become flat.
* Let the cake cool down in the cake pan as it will keep the sponge cake moist.
* We recommend using the real whipping cream with no additives. It is rich-flavored and far more tastier than non-dairy alternatives.
* The baking time depends on various factors, for example, the size of round pan and the type of oven you use. We recommend keeping your eyes on the cake while baking.
* If the height of sponge cake is not enough, you might want to bake another sponge cake so that your Christmas cake will have 3 or 4 layers.

Please activate the subtitles by clicking the setting icon at the bottom right of the video and follow the instructions. They explain how many times you need to scoop the batter with a spatula and this process is essential to make fluffy sponge cake. The ingredient list is described above and we recommend using cake flour instead of pastry flour.

I made this cake but I also added canned peaches and I used the peach syrup instead of the brandy to moisten it. Seriously, it is totally worth it, very delicious, light cake. I always make it when I can get nice fresh strawberries.

Her laugh at the end when the cake piece fell. 😂 she is just adorable. I wish I had her as a mom.

I made this as a birthday cake for my dad. It turned out wonderful!! A tip for those who do not have cake flour and only have all purpose: for each cup of flour, take away two Tbsp and replace them with cornstarch! Sift five times before using it in this recipe. :) Follow this recipe exactly and you can't go wrong! I did mess up on the first batter though, when I accidentally put in the butter and milk while beating the batter which resulted in a watery mixture that would not beat to soft peak. Beating to soft peak and not over mixing is definitely key to a good spongy cake!

I'm not lactose intolerant, but here's a tip for people who are-
Chill a can of full fat coconut in your fridge overnight. In the morning, carefully open the can and scoop out the cream from the top. This can be whipped with a bit of powdered sugar to make a sweet whipped topping. Then you could either follow the recipe completely, or top the cake with flakes of toasted coconut for extra yum~

I love Japanese sentences where you can find katakana, hiragana, and kanji all in one place. So the titles of most of these videos are a thing of beauty. ^_^

I made this and the cake is very moist. I used a kitchen scale to measure and cut the recipe in half since. I am in the US.
