Directions

What better way to celebrate than with cake? And what is better than a fat free cake? The best thing about this is that it is so simple to make, it is fat free yet tastes like a chocolate swiss roll...honestly, it is so delicious!
  1. In an electric stand mixer, whisk together the eggs and caster sugar until the mixture doubles in volume, and you get a pale and fluffy consistency (if you are doing this by an electric whisk it will take more patience...but you will get there)
  2. Gently add the plain flour, cocoa powder and salt, and fold gently using a large spoon, keeping as much of the air in as possible
  3. Place the mixture into a lined and greased 20cm cake tin, and put in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 30-35 mins
  4. Test with a skewer to see if it is done. Remove, and leave to cool slightly before removing it out of the tin and letting it cool completely
  5. Cut the cake lengthways in half, add the jam and then sandwich the other layer on top
  6. Dust the icing over the cake, then arrange the strawberries on top as you like

Delicious, beautiful and most importantly...FAT FREE! Enjoy :)
