European style fruit cake base

Submitted by: LYSI77

Introduction

This base works well for fruit cakes, European style. Similar to an angel cake or Victoria sponge cake I think. I topped it with fresh strawberries and agar-agar but any fruit would work well. You might even put a thin layer of custard or vegan pudding onto the cake base and then top it with the fruit. Extra yummy and the fruit juice won't soak the base.

Transfer into a greased, round baking form.
Place in the oven for 20-25 min.
Insert a tooth pick into the dough after 20 min. If it comes out clean, the cake is done. If not, put back into the oven.
