Skip the Layers with this Strawberry Sponge Cake Recipe

I love the combination of strawberries and sponge cake but I don’t always have time to prepare the classic layered strawberry sponge cake when making a dessert. This recipe saves on time but doesn’t fall short on flavor, baked in one large glass pan for ease of preparing.

The chocolate chips are sprinkled on top for just a hint of sweet chocolate combined with fresh strawberries. Alternatively, you can by-pass this step altogether and bake the cake without the chocolate chips if desired.

Wait for the sponge cake to cool completely before serving alongside a cup of coffee or tea or even on it’s own. Additionally, you can sprinkle some icing sugar over top to complete before serving.
