Ingredients

  • 225 g Butter Unsalted, softened
  • 225 g Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 225 g Self Raising Flour
  • 225 g Strawberries Hulled and chopped
  • 300 ml Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 200 g Digestive Biscuits Crushed
  • 150 g Strawberry Jelly Crystals
  • 300 ml Water Boiling

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C fan) and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Gradually fold in the self-raising flour until the batter is smooth.
  • Gently fold in the chopped strawberries.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • While the cake is baking, prepare the jelly mixture. Dissolve the strawberry jelly crystals in 300ml of boiling water, stirring until completely dissolved. Allow it to cool to room temperature.
  • Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the cake.
  • Pour the cooled strawberry jelly mixture evenly over the cake, ensuring it fills the holes.
  • Let the cake cool completely, then refrigerate for about 30 minutes to allow the jelly to set.
  • Whip the double cream and icing sugar together until it forms stiff peaks.
  • Spread the whipped cream over the chilled cake.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the crushed digestive biscuits with any remaining chopped strawberries.
  • Sprinkle the strawberry and biscuit mixture over the top of the whipped cream.
  • Slice, serve, and enjoy your delicious Strawberry Crunch Poke Cake!
