    Inge 1505's Note:

    Typically baked in a special round form that bakes a rim for easier filling, but any round 11 inch form will do. Fill baked bottom with 3/8 inch (1 cm) pastry cream or thick vanilla pudding and top with fresh fruit like strawberries. Keep strawberries from toppling off the cake by pouring a little strawberry flavored prepared jello over strawberries. When set cut cake into 12 wedges. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream on the side.

      I made this but it curdled when I added the eggs and I am at a loss to understand why as everything was at room temperature. It still baked well and tasted lovely but it was lumpy as a batter. Also the 3 tablespoons=150grams of flour seemed a bit off so I just added the tablespoons and didn't weigh the flour. I may try it again to see if I get better results.

      You've so inspired me that I surprised my mom for her birthday using your suggestion of topping with thick vanilla pudding and strawberries. When I showed up at her door, she cried. Not to worry, it was tears of joy!
