Brigit's bakery strawberry soft cakes made with rhubarb gin

Recipe for 30 cakes

Ingredients for strawberry whipped ganache:

75g strawberry puree

15g caster sugar

175g white chocolate

250g liquid whipping cream

20g Slingsby Rhubarb Gin


  1. In a saucepan put together strawberry puree and caster sugar and bring gently to boil
  2. Pour over white chocolate and mix well using a spatula to create a ganache
  3. Add in the cold liquid whipping cream and the rhubarb gin and mix well to combine (if you have an electrical hand blender, just give the mix a blend)
  4. Keep the mix in the fridge to cool down (the mix has to be cold to be able to whip it so we suggest you do the ganache a few hours before or even better the day before so it rests gently overnight)

310g caster sugar

240g whole eggs

137g liquid whipping cream

2g salt

  5. Dice your strawberries and place one piece on the top of each cake
  6. Bake for 11/12 minutes at 160° C
  7. Leave at room temperature to cool down


Finishing off:

  1. Put the strawberry ganache mix into a bowl of a stand mixer and whip using the whisk to obtain a smooth and firm texture
  2. Have your sponge cakes ready on a tray and prepare a piping bag with a fluted piping nozzle
  3. Put the whipped ganache inside the bag and pipe a rosette on the top of your sponge cake
  4. You can finish off by adding a little piece of fresh strawberry.
