Strawberry Recipe With Meringue

Here´s a delicious recipe that I wanted to share with you: Strawberry Cake.

517 g yellow cake mix
315 ml orange juice
4 eggs, separated
3 g grated orange peel
0.8 g cream of tartar
250 g sugar, divided
475 ml whipping cream
715 g fresh strawberries, divided

In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, orange juice, egg yolks and orange peel. Beat for 4 minutes. Pour into two greased and floured baking pans; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium until foamy. Gradually beat in 1 cup sugar, a tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spread the meringue evenly over cake batter. Bake at 176 ºC for 35 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Cool in pans on wire racks (meringue will crack).
Beat cream until stiff peaks form.
Mash 1/2 cup of strawberries with remaining sugar; fold into whipped cream. Loosen edges of cakes from pans with a knife. Using two large spatulas, carefully remove one cake to a serving platter, meringue side up. Carefully spread with about two-thirds of the cream mixture. Slice the remaining berries; arrange half over cream mixture. Repeat layers. Store in the refrigerator.
