An Eton Mess Traybake with a Fresh Strawberry & Vanilla Sponge and everything Eton Mess - Fresh Cream, Meringues, and even more Strawberry!
Preheat your oven to 180c/160C Fan and line a 9x13" Traybake tin with parchment paper!
With a stand mixer, beat your Butter and Sugar together till light and fluffy.
Add in the Eggs, Flour and Vanilla and beat till a lovely smooth sponge mixture is created!
Add your strawberries to the top of the sponge evenly - sprinkle of the granulated sugar if you are using it! (It gives a nice crunchy top!)
Bake the cake in the oven for 45-55 minutes! (Check with a skewer)
Leave the cake to cool in the tin for 10 minutes or so once baked, and then move to a wire rack to cool fully! (Be careful moving it as it'll be very soft!)
Pour your Double Cream into a bowl with the Icing Sugar, and whip till thick and spreadable.
Spread over the top of the Cake, and then add your Meringue bits and Strawberries on top!
Sprinkle with Freeze Dried Strawberries and serve!
