Best Strawberry Shortcake Recipe Ever: Cake

The batter may be made lighter by stirring in 1/4 of the meringue. Toss the leftover meringue lightly with a spatula. Transfer the mixture to the pan that has been heated and ready.

To ensure a clean toothpick put in the middle of the cake comes out, bake for about 55 minutes. Quickly remove from mold and let to cool entirely on a wire rack.
Strawberry-Vanilla Smoothie

Peel the vanilla bean lengthwise and cut it in half. Extract the vanilla pod's seeds using the pointy end of a knife.

Mix the sugar, strawberries, vanilla seeds, and pod in a basin. Let it macerate for about fifteen minutes. Eliminate waste. Take out the seed. Keep aside.
Vanilla Ice Cream

In a mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to whisk the cream, sugar, and vanilla extract until firm peaks are formed. Keep aside.
Putting Together

Divide the cake into two equal pieces by cutting it horizontally in half. On the cut side of every slice, spread 250 ml, or 1 cup, of the whipped cream. Top a cake slice with whipped cream and top with the drained vanilla strawberries. Flip the second piece of cake over and place it on top, whipped cream side down. Using the leftover whipped cream, decorate the cake's top. Add some fresh strawberries as a garnish.
