Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With an electric mixer, beat the eggs until frothy. Continue to beat while adding the water, the vanilla, and gradually, the sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Then, sift into the egg mixture.
  3. Grease two 9 inch cake pans, then pour batter into the pans. Bake at 350F for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  4. When cool, invert both layers so that the bottoms become the tops. Wet both layers with raspberry, strawberry, or pineapple juice.
  5. Spread the bottom layer generously with whipped cream and slices of the same fruit as the juice. Add the top layer, spread it with the remaining whipped cream and decorate with the same fruit.
