Sure. It's several different elements, but they're all pretty simple. Cake base: This is traditionally NOT a butter cake. It's just five ingredients: 6 eggs 180g Sugar (by weight) 1 tsp vanilla extract 180g all purpose flour 1 1/2 tsp baking powder I put the eggs, vanilla, and sugar in a mixer and whipped them for at least 10 minutes. This may seem like a long time, but if you don't do this, the cake will be flat and dense. Want to get a lot of air in it, much like if you were making a meringue. Mix the baking powder into the flour, and then fold that into the egg mixture. Don't over mix it. Bake at 325F in a 9" pan. I used parchment paper and did not grease the sides of the pan. Cool it in the pan and then turn out to finish cooling. If you did it right, you should be able to cut it into three even layers. Vanilla Custard: 2 egg yolks 60g sugar 2 Tbs corn starch 2 cups heavy cream 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp salt Mix the yolks, sugar, and corn starch in a bowl. Bring the cream, vanilla, and salt to just short of a boil in a saucepan. Temper the eggs with the milk (if you don't, you'll end up scrambling your eggs). Once you have everything mixed, put the entire mixture back into the saucepan, and simmer it until it thickens like a pudding. Put that in a bowl and into the fridge to cool thoroughly. I Jam: I used a store bought strawberry jam, but if you wanted to make your own compote or jam, you'd be a star. You can use whatever you like. Whipped Cream: I make it the way I like it, which may be sweeter than some folks. 3 cups heavy cream 1/3 cup confectioner's sugar 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract I think that's it. Make sure everything is nice and cold. Put one layer of cake down, brush it with a little milk, juice, or i used Amaretto. Not enough to make it soggy... just a little. Then a good layer of jam (about 1/4 cup), and then half of the custard, then a healthy layer of whipped cream. Repeat that, and then put the last layer on top. Frost everything however you like, and top it with whatever fresh fruit you want. I used strawberries and blueberries, but a lot of folks like raspberries, blackberries, or marionberries.
