Mix together the dry ingredients and sift into the saucepan and fold into a smooth batter.

Pour the batter into a lined heart-shaped springform and bake in the lower part of the preheated oven (175 c) for 40-55 minutes or until completely cooked through. 


Decorations: Whip 5 dl whipping cream, mix 1/3 of it with strawberry jam (heat some frozen strawberries on the stove and let it cool before using). 

Cut the cake into two layers. Add vanilla cream (recipe for vanilla cream: Put some  whipped cream on the base layer but save some for the piping decorations.

Put the strawberry-whipped cream on top of the cake and decorate by piping whipped cream on top, adding strawberries & sprinkles!
