Strawberry cake/pie - version 1.0

I looove strawberry cake/pie !!!!! But I DO NOT understand, how a baker without blinking can charge 70 DKK (=9,50 €) for one strawberry cake, which hardly can serve more than 3-4 persons !!!!!! I will look at the price and decided, that this is TOOOO demanding. So I am not buy any strawberry cakes/pie at the Danish bakers in protest against these prices.

So I have start my own project on developing my own favourite and easy to make strawberry cake/pie. And this recipe here is version 1.0. And there is still plenty of room for further improvements, but it is a good first shot. My first focus is on to get the bottom layer perfect.

This pie bottom could have been perfect, if only I had bake ½ the amount, as the baked portion was giving to big a bottom layer. However, the taste is great. And the cake "judges" did their very best to eat up the entire cake, but I had to call in the help of my neighbor to finish the job (thank you number 16 :-)))))

So I will look at other pie bottom options. And I will also be on the look-out for a vanilla cream layer. I will keep you posted on version 1.1 of the "important" cake task !!!!

  1. Uhmm, jeg ELSKER jordbærtærte, men jeg nægter også betale de ublu priser bagerne tager for dem - og hjemmebagte er altså de bedste :-)

    Mange hilsner
