During hot summer days, a light sponge summer cake is all that you need. Soft sponge biscuit, sweet vanilla cream and cold fresh fruit – anyone interested?
This is traditional cake in my family. We love to make it almost during whole year. In winter we make it with bananas or preserved fruit such as pineapple, peach etc. In spring there are berries, in summer there is so much choices, and autumn brings apples and pears. This time I combined banas, peaches, blueberries and pashion fruit. As you can see, there is so many fruit combination for this cake. Just pick your favourite and get on work.

Until you are waiting, make sure that you get all other ingredients prepared. You can cut fruit into small pieces, and whip the whipping cream. When everything is done, you can put all pieces together.
