Nutritional values

The secondary plant substances ferulic and ellagic acid from strawberries have been proven to have a cancer-preventive effect. They are also real vitamin packages. They contain plenty of vitamin C, K and folate. The yoghurt scores with calcium, which strengthens our bones and teeth.

Only use flawless strawberries for the topping so that you can enjoy any cake leftovers the next day (keep the cake in a cool place). Overripe fruit or berries with pressure marks tend to quickly develop mould. You can also garnish the cake with other berries, such as blackberries. Instead of Amarettini you can also use wholemeal butter biscuits.
