martine’s gâteau de savoie

Martine’s Gâteau de Savoie is the kind of simple cake I’ll want to make all summer long. It’s the perfect thing to go with roasted strawberries, a pile of raspberries, sliced plums, whatever. It’s an easy to make separated egg sponge– no butter, oil or baking powder needed. I baked mine in a mold that’s traditionally used for something I’ve never made called a trois freres cake, but a bundt pan will do nicely here. I have a jar of scented geranium sugar in the cupboard that I made quite a long time ago and always seem to forget about. I made a mental note to bake with it here, thinking that its light floral taste would go nicely with the roasted strawberries I would be serving alongside the cake. I was too embarrassed to photo the extra large blob of whipped cream I also spooned on top, but you can take my word that shortcake-style ain’t a bad thing.

  1. Geranium scented sugar with roasted strawberries and whipped cream on a Trois ferres cake mold. Looks and sounds like a heavenly combination.

  2. I have been thinking of multiple ways to use this cake, like a trifle with berries and cream. Adding cream sounds like the right idea to me.

  3. My son loved this cake with plenty of whipped cream. It was a nice summer cake.

  4. This is absolutely gorgeous! And it was good “stale” toasted, right? 😉

  5. I would never be embarrassed about a large spoon of whipped cream! You would probably just make everyone jealous that they didn’t have it too. You only have one life for living!

  6. This is definitely going on my to-do list!
