Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.

This cake contains no oil or butter, but still it’s soft and airy. Here I’ve used whipped cream which makes the cake quick and easy to make, and the addition of lemon curd and apple makes it fresh and flavorful.

Here is the recipe – enjoy.

Whipped Vanilla Cream Cake

  • 1 3/4 cup (225 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon (15 g) corn starch
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (230 g) regular sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup (350 ml) heavy cream
  • 1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthways and seeds scraped out (optional)
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature

Preheat the oven to 375 ˚F (190 ˚C).

Bring out all the ingredients.

You can leave out the vanilla bean here as the lemon and apple will give the cake plenty of flavor.
