My favorite part of summer is picking bazillions of strawberries and finding tasty ways to enjoy them.  Today I made Erdbeerkuchen!

It’s so easy to make (<45 minutes, incl. cleanup), so tasty, and somewhat healthy!

Beat together 4 egg-whites and 3 tablespoons water until stiff.  Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the 4 egg yolks with 175 grams sugar, 160 grams flour, and one tablespoon baking powder.

Fold the egg-whites and yolk mixtures together and bake at 375° for ~10 minutes.

Arrange strawberries on top of the cooled cake.  If you can find “Tortenguss”, use it to hold them in place, and let the cake sit for 15 minutes.

[I love putting other fruits on top as well!   Arrange raspberries and blueberries on the cake and serve it with whipped cream for the 4th of July!]
