Strawberry Yogurt Cake with Pistachios
This wonderfully light strawberry cake with quark (curd) and yoghurt sweetens our early summer - with delicious strawberries that have a lot to offer: Secondary plant substances, such as flavonoids, protect the body's cells from damage by free radicals. The sweet berries also contain immune-strengthening vitamin C, the B-vitamin folic acid and iron.
The cake with sponge cake base can easily be varied in taste by replacing the strawberries with other fruit, such as blueberries, raspberries, mandarins or cherries. Let your creativity run free!
