How to make May Cake:

Start by Pre-heat the oven to about 350 degrees. Then mix sugar and butter until smooth. Add one egg at a time, and mix it well together. Add the flour, cornflour, baking powder, Cocoa powder and vanilla sugar and mix it all well together. Then you ad the whipping cream and the apple sauce. When you’ve mixed everything well together, pour the mix into a grated baking form that holds about 1  ½ L. Cover it up with baking paper. Bake the cake in the oven for about 45 min. When you take the cake out of the oven put it aside and let it cool down completely.

Melt the butter for the frosting and let it cool. Then add Cocoa powder and vanilla sugar. Whisk one egg together, and add it into the mix. Then whisk it all good together until you have a smooth frosting.

Cut the cake in half, so you end up having two layers.  put one layer of apple sauce on the bottom layer of the cake, then add 1/3 of the frosting on top. Gently place the top layer on top and cover the whole cake with the rest of the frosting.

Cut strawberries in half(sideways) and decorate your cake with fresh strawberries. It will look fresh, and tasty. We all now how well Chocolate and Strawberries goes together.

I hope you have an amazing day and I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do.
