For the sponge cake:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the strawberry mousse:

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and diced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons gelatin powder
  • 2 cups heavy cream

For the strawberry gelatin topping:

  • 1 cup strawberry juice or puree (from fresh strawberries or store-bought)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin powder
  • Fresh strawberries for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together using an electric mixer until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add the milk and vanilla extract to the egg mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  9. Once the cake has cooled, carefully remove it from the pan and place it on a serving plate.
  10. For the strawberry mousse, puree the diced strawberries in a blender or food processor until smooth. Set aside.
  11. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Heat over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  12. Sprinkle the gelatin powder over the water mixture and stir until the gelatin has completely dissolved.
  13. In a large mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form.
  14. Gradually pour the gelatin mixture into the whipped cream while continuing to whip on low speed.
  15. Add the strawberry puree to the whipped cream and gently fold it in until well combined.
  16. Pour the strawberry mousse over the cooled sponge cake in the cake pan, spreading it out evenly.
  17. Refrigerate the cake for at least 4 hours, or until the mousse is set.
  18. For the strawberry gelatin topping, heat the strawberry juice or puree in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  19. Add the sugar and gelatin powder to the saucepan and stir until dissolved.
  20. Let the gelatin mixture cool for a few minutes, then pour it over the set strawberry mousse layer in the cake pan.
  21. Refrigerate the cake again for another 2 hours, or until the gelatin topping is fully set.
  22. Once the gelatin is set, carefully remove the cake from the pan.
  23. Garnish the strawberry mousse cake with fresh strawberries, if desired.
  24. Slice and serve the delicious strawberry mousse cake, and enjoy!

This cake is best served chilled and can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. The light and fluffy strawberry mousse, sponge cake, and fruity gelatin topping combine to make a refreshing and delectable dessert.
