* Ingredients :

* For the cake:
☞ 150 g flour
☞ 125 g sugar
☞ 1/2 sachet of yeast
☞ 2 eggs
☞ 12 cl of milk
☞ 12 cl of oil or 100 g of melted butter (your choice)
☞ 500 g strawberries
☞ 200 g soft, unsalted butter

* For decoration:
☞ 500 g plain cheese spread
☞ 250 g icing sugar

* Methods :

1 .While your oven is preheating to 200 ° C, prepare the sponge cake which will be the base of your cake: in a bowl, pour the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, eggs, milk, oil or butter (your choice), and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon.
2.Once it is homogeneous and without lumps, pour your preparation into a round loaf pan , then bake for about 30 min, until the point of a knife comes out almost completely dry. Turn out the cake and let it cool for at least 30 minutes on a wire rack.
3.While the cake has cooled, wash, hull and cut the strawberries into slices. Then prepare the topping cream: in a bowl, first whip the cheese with the butter, then incorporate the icing sugar.
4.When the cake is warm enough to cut without crumbling too much, remove its top crust by slicing (using the tip of a large knife) a disc (as regular as possible) 1 cm from the top, so that the top of the cake is as flat as a pie.
5.Next, coat all its visible sides with the butter and cheese cream (use a large spatula to be even). Finally, arrange slices of strawberries all around the edge of the cake, and decorate the top too, making a sort of pyramid of petals
