Cracked Sponge Cake and a Recovery Plan.

I baked a sponge cake today.

And it cracked.

It’s not even a cheesecake,

yet it had the cheek to split so deep right down its middle.


The cake looked as if an earthquake went through it.


Then i remember my pack of strawberries, frozen in time in my freezer.  

And an idea hit me like a tornado.

Of course!

Making a strawberry jam out of  strawberries.

Then flooding it over the cake.

A disaster recovered,

And a cake survived.

PS: I wont be posting the cracked cake recipe today as i don’t quite think that it is a recipe i would recommend to anyone.

    I’d eat it cracked. But this way is even better.

    Thank you for posting this. It makes me feel better when I see amazing cooks have problems sometimes, too. 🙂 Good save, though!

    It still looks delicious even with the cracks! I bet the strawberry glaze made it taste great! 🙂

    You always come up with wonderful things to do to a pastry if it doesn’t look as it should I love this sponge cake

    I love it when things that seem like a disaster can be saved and in this case turn out looking gorgeous and I’m sure tasted great!
