Strawberry Brita Cake

Strawberry Brita Cake

It is a typical Finnish summer cake with a based of a butter cake with a meringue baked onto it, whipped cream, and fresh berries.

To appreciate this cake, you need two things: taste buds — hopefully a non-hurdle when cream, meringue, butter cake, and fresh berries are involved — and to embrace the dishevelment of it. It might be more of a pile of cake components by the time you get it all sliced, but unlike any messes in my non-cooking life, it will be a charming one, more trifle than … don’t say it, Deb… don’t do it… trifling.
