A perfect sponge with fresh berries. Best served with a nice cup of tea!
Preheat oven to 190ºC (370ºF). Grease and line one bundt tin 25cm x 9 cm (9 1/2 x 3 1/2in).
Use electric beaters to beat the butter and the sugar until very light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition. Add the lemon zest.
Sift together the potato starch and baking powder and gradually add to the creamed mixture. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden and risen and a skewer inserted into the center of a cake comes out clean.
Allow to cool on a wire rack then turn out to decorate.
Place the cream, vanilla beans and sugar in a mixing bowl and use electric beaters to beat on high speed until thick. Fold in the strawberries. Place the cream on top of one of the cakes and spread just to the edges with a palette knife or spatula. Allow the cream to gradually fall down the cake, top with strawberries and dust with icing sugar.
