In the summer you do not want to stand at the stove, turn on the oven and eat too fatty and high-calorie food. But few people refuse strawberries, as well as ice cream. How to get out of a situation where everyone wants tasty and sweet, and only one kind of oven or stove is associated with the vent of a shaking volcano? We solve the problem quickly and efficiently: this is the very case when you can use the services of the food industry and trading network to “kill two birds with one stone”, enjoy the cool strawberry dessert, and not sweat at the stove.
Biscuit with strawberries - the basic technological principles
Biscuit - a universal cake mix for creating desserts, and goes well with many additions to it. Here you can use any berries and fruits, chocolate, cottage cheese, cream cheese, protein creams, ice cream, nuts, jelly or marmalade.
If you still want to make a sponge cake by yourself, then in the summertime it is better to use the cold method of its preparation. Just be sure to check the freshness of the eggs. The pomp of the sponge cake depends on it. Preparing the cake is easy: one average egg requires 25 g of sugar and the same amount of flour. If you prefer chocolate sponge cake, combine the flour with cocoa, in equal parts, but at the same time maintaining the overall proportion. For a cream biscuit, add butter to the dough, 10 g for each egg. In the cold cooking method, proteins and yolks are separated and whipped separately: the proteins are pre-cooled, and the yolks are ground with sugar and then combined with flour and protein mass. To make a creamy biscuit, whipped butter is added to the yolks.
The dough should be immediately put in the oven, be sure to preheat it beforehand. Sponge cake is baked for about 20-25 minutes. It is impossible to open the oven until the semi-finished product increases by 3 times and the characteristic crust appears on the surface, and it is advisable not to put any heavy pans on the stove when baking the biscuit to protect the sweet dessert from mechanical effects. There are other ways of making biscuit cake mix, but they require more time. Perhaps, for the dessert of biscuit with strawberries in the summer, you need to be guided by only one main principle: go to the supermarket, choose those foods that you want to eat. Of course, meat and fish with a biscuit should not be combined, but everything else will look very appetizing in the composition on the theme “Summer and a sponge cake with strawberries”.

An hour before the strawberry jelly with the berries supposedly hardens, we begin to beat the chilled cream. Since the recipe says that you need a lot of cream, and they are whipped qualitatively only in a small volume, up to 300 ml, then beat them in parts, dividing the total mass in half. Then, after combining the whipped cream, gradually introduce condensed milk into them, continuing to beat, for another fifteen minutes. Ready strawberry jelly with berries cut into cubes. The jelly pieces are gently mixed with half of the whipped cream. The second part of the whipped cream with condensed milk is left to cover the surface of the cake. We spread the first biscuit cake in the form, spread the creamy-jelly mass, spread the second biscuit cake on top, which we lubricate on top of some whipped cream with condensed milk. Now we send to the freezer for at least 6 hours.
