Ingredients

spongy dessert:

  • One-half teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • A half-teaspoon of baking powder
  • Granulated sugar, 1/2 cup
  • all-purpose flour, half a cup
  • 3 big, room-temperature eggs

Regarding fruit and glaze:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of hot water and 3 tablespoons of seedless raspberry jam
  • 12 ounces of mixed berries

For stable whipped cream freezing:

  • milk, to desired consistency, or two teaspoons
  • 3 teaspoons of sugar powder
  • White chocolate powder for rapid use in 4 teaspoons (45 g)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, frozen

Instructions

Making the Sponge Cake:

  • Set the oven to 350°F and line a 9" round cake pan with parchment paper (or springform pan). To chill, put a large mixing basin in the freezer. Whipping cream will be simpler to beat if you use a refrigerated mixing bowl.
  • Add three eggs to the bowl of your mixer, and whisk them for one minute on high speed. Add sugar gradually and beat for a further 8 minutes. When you lift the whisk, it should be beaten and create a thick ribbon.
  • Mix 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder in a separate dish, and then sprinkle the mixture into the beaten eggs in thirds, mixing between each addition. Just combine in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (do not overmix).
  • Bake for 25 minutes at 350°F. Allow cake to cool in pan for three minutes, then loosen from pan by running a thin spatula along the sides. Remove parchment paper, invert cake onto a wire rack, and allow to cool fully to room temperature.

Creating Fruit Glaze:

  • 3 Tbsp raspberry jam and 1 1/2 Tbsp hot water should be mixed thoroughly in a measuring cup. Heat the glaze just enough to loosen it up if it appears lumpy.

How to Make Whipped Cream That Is Stabilized:

  • Add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream to the cooled mixing bowl and beat for 1-2 minutes at high speed, just until firm peaks form.
  • Add 4 Tbsp instant pudding and 3 Tbsp powdered sugar, mixing after each addition of 1 Tbsp of each. until thoroughly combined, beat at a medium-high pace. Add milk, 1/2 tablespoon at a time, if frosting looks too thick (I added 2 Tbsp milk). Beat until frosting is creamy and the pudding mix has completely dissolved (2 min).

How to Put the Fruit Cake Together:

  • Put half of the frosting in a piping bag with a Wilton 2D big closed star tip and reserve. Place a dollop of frosting on the cake's top and spread it out.
  • Add 4 Tbsp instant pudding and 3 Tbsp powdered sugar, mixing after each addition of 1 Tbsp of each. until thoroughly combined, beat at a medium-high pace. Add milk, 1/2 tablespoon at a time, if frosting looks too thick (I added 2 Tbsp milk). Beat until frosting is creamy and the pudding mix has completely dissolved (2 min).
  • Brush all of the glaze over the fruit, then pipe the remaining frosting over the top edge of the cake, leaving a 1" border. Serve immediately or wait to serve when chilled.

Notes

Beat for 10 minutes at the maximum speed if you're using an electric hand mixer.
