5. Put the mixer on low and slowly add the flour. Or you can fold in using a spatula.

6. Pour in hot water along the side of the bowl and quickly fold in until liquid is blended.

7. Divide mixture into pans and bake for 35-40 mins. Do Not Open the oven during baking or cakes will collapse!!

8. Switch the oven off and let the pans sit in the oven for another 5 mins before removing them.

9. Let pans cool on a wire rack for 5 mins before running a knife around the edges and turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Peel off the parchment. Allow the cakes to completely cool before assembly.

10. To assemble, whip up the heavy cream. (it is optional for you to add some vanilla extract and or powdered sugar to the cream if you prefer a sweeter tasting cream).

Put a layer of cake on a plate or cake base using a dollop of whipped cream to hold it down.

11. Spread some whipped cream on the cake. Scatter some blueberries and slice strawberries and place another layer of sponge cake. Lightly press down the cake. Repeat the layering process with the whipped cream and berries.

When done, place in the fridge for an hour or so to chill before serving.
