Fluffy Japanese Strawberry Shortcake Recipe – Japanese Strawberry Cake イチゴのショートケーキ

Fluffy Japanese Strawberry Shortcake Recipe – Japanese Strawberry Cake イチゴのショートケーキ

hi guys today we’re making Japanese
Strawberry shortcake the first time I saw this cake I was just struck by
beauty it’s gorgeous this cake is unlike any strawberry cake
you might have had and what makes it so special and different is the fluffiness
of the sponge combined with the soft whipped cream which goes perfectly with
the fresh strawberries it’s a delicate beautiful delicious cake guys perfect
for any occasion then we’re going to start by making the sponge to my egg
whites I’ve added a bit of lemon juice which along with the sugar will help
stabilize the egg whites and give structure to our meringue once the eggs
start to become foamy you can start gradually adding the sugar we’re making
a sponge cake today so it’s really important we incorporate lots of air
into the egg whites because the cake will get its lift from this meringue if
you’re new to my channel make sure to subscribe and click that bow I post new
videos every week once you reach stiff peaks set the meringue to the side for a
moment and in this other bowl I have the egg yolks and vanilla
now this isn’t necessary but I do like to be my egg yolks to lighten them in
color so we can a beautiful subtle pale golden sponge for those of you wondering
I have made this cake with just the egg whites I personally didn’t like it
there’s no contrast with the cream so I do think just using less egg yolks and
whipping them gives us cake that beautiful color I’ve added the milk and
melted butter which we’ll stop in our sponge and then you can mix in the dry
ingredients it’s crucial for sponge cakes to not over mix the dry
ingredients because of the low fat content these cakes
huh I have an entire video dedicated to cake science so if you’re interested
just check the description box for the link add some dollops of the meringue to
the cake batter to loosen it so we want this to be a soft consistency so when
you fold in the rest of your egg whites you can incorporate them without using
too much pressure and keep lots of air and then they
sir divide this beautiful cake batter into bands buttered floured and lined
with parchment paper you can use a spatula you know to even everything out
and you’re going to bake the cakes in a preheated oven at 160 degrees Celsius or
320 Fahrenheit for around 20 to 22 minutes do the toothpick test if it
comes out clean the cakes are ready you’ll notice these cakes pull away from
the sides very easily and I love this cake because it bakes flats with no
caramelization allow the cakes to cool for five minutes and then take them out
of their pants and let them cool completely before you assemble the cake
now this cake wants a soft whipped cream this can be quite tricky and you do need
to work fast especially if you’re assembling this cake on a hot day
however if you don’t feel comfortable using straight-up
whipped cream I got you covered in the description box you’ll find two options
one of which is definitely a sturdier whipped cream out of your Sidley sliced
strawberries and at this point you may be thinking that’s not a lot of
strawberries for a strawberry cake but this is a strawberry shortcake and I do
think the beauty of this cake is that delicate strawberry flavor however if
you want a deeper strawberry flavor I do have another strawberry cake on the
channel with a strawberry caramel it’s just as delicious and I’ll leave a link
to that video you’re going to top this with more whipped cream the other cake
sponge and again more cream now this is a refrigerated cake because of the fresh
fruit and the cream so once you’ve assembled this you’re going to cover it
and pop it in the fridge for at least 2 hours and it will also be easier to cut
you’re going to trim all four sides of the cake to reveal those beautiful
layers and because this is youtube and nothing is ever implied hull cake scraps
we’re saved and eaten top the cake with more fresh strawberries and the cake is
ready to serve and enjoy I love the look of this cake guys not only do I think
it’s beautiful but it also stands out among the more
traditional strawberry cakes the softness of the sponge is incredible
it’s almost like eating a fluffy cloud with cream and strawberries the cake is
just delicious if you want to give your strawberry cake this year a different
look and a unique and amazing texture make this cake

  6. Hi Emma! I hv a request. Can you touch the subject on friori di scicilia and describe the aroma of it. Where can I purchase this aroma flavour in Rome? And also perhaps you can use it in one of your cakes, like vanilla cake and compare the favour with your existing recipe. Hope you would consider making a video on this. Thank you!🤗

  11. I made it and it’s really delicious, the recipe is perfect!! But it looks totally different from yours😅💝

  12. I find Japanese "cakes" tend to be very eggy. I think I'd want a strawberry sauce with that, too, as I like a higher ratio of strawberries

  13. Ciao Emma ho provato la tua ricetta e anche se era la prima volta che la eseguivo il risultato è stato fantastico. Davvero buona 😊 infatti vorrei rifarla ma al cacao, come posso fare con le dosi? Grazie 🌼😘😋

  14. I had never heard of shortcakes before and I just got a huge box of huge strawberries from a friend's farm so it's the perfect opportunity to make this.. I'm thinking of using diplomat cream as filling..

  15. Thank's Emma. Once again you've displayed with such simplicity, how to bake and assemble a wonderful and tasty cake. Love your channel to bits (just like your recipes).

  18. Umm… i made this… this tastes great… even though i am not the best baker… this must me a pretty good recipe if i can make it. Thanks Emma!!

  19. Just tried today, great recipe works very well! I did reduce the sugar from 120g to 100g to make it less sweet though! Thank you for this amazing recipe.

  20. This is my to-go cake… I make it a day before and enjoy the moist strawberry flavoured sponge… I sometimes add strawberry syrup to the sponge which adds a rich flavour

  26. I have a cooking 'examination' and when my teacher tasted my cake, she asked " did u make this before?" and i just smiled

  27. I made this cake for my mother in law's birthday and it was so so delicious! It's not to sweet and super easy to make.
