1 pint strawberries
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 eggs
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup sour cream
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 egg yolks
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup whipping cream


To make pastry cream, whisk egg yolks, 1/4 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar. Add 1/2 Tbl. flour and whipping cream. Cook over boiling water until thick. Let cool before using.

To make cake, cream butter and 1 1/2 cup sugar. Add 1 tsp. vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Alternate sifted flour and baking soda with sour cream a little at a time, ending with sour cream.

Place batter into individual forms or muffin pans. Bake at 350 degrees 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cut strawberries and sprinkle with 1/4-1/2 cup sugar. Let sit for 1/2 hour until a sauce appears.

Cut cake into 3 equal sized pieces. Put first piece on bottom of plate, then top with some strawberries and drizzle with sauce. Place a dollop of chilled pastry cream on top of strawberries as glue. Add next piece of cake and repeat. Garnish with whipped cream.
