Strawberry Cream Cake

Ingredients

For the scone

  • 175g butter, frozen
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g golden caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 150ml cold full-fat milk
  • tiny squeeze lemon juice
  • beaten egg, for glazing

For the topping and filling

  • 350g strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 50g golden caster sugar, plus a little sugar for sprinkling
  • 1 tbsp posh strawberry jam (we like Tiptree Little Scarlet Strawberry Conserve)
  • 140g clotted cream
  • small drop vanilla extract

 

Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. On the coarse side of a box grater, grate the butter into a bowl, then place back in the freezer for 5 mins. With a spatula, quickly mix the butter with the flour, baking powder and sugar, add the milk and lemon juice, then bring together until you have a butter-speckled dough. Knead the dough a few times on a floured surface. Roll out to a circle, press into a lightly greased 20cm sandwich tin, then brush the top with egg and scatter with a little sugar. Bake for 20 mins until risen and golden, then transfer to a cooling rack.
  2. While the scone is cooling, toss the strawberries in a bowl with a sprinkling of the sugar and the jam, then set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk the clotted cream until stiff with the 50g sugar and a drop of vanilla extract.
  3. To assemble the cake, place the scone base on a serving plate, spread the cream over, leaving a slight edge of the cake showing, then pile the saucy strawberries on top. Serve cut into wedges

Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system.[1] Traditionally, neuroscience has been seen as a branch of biology. However, it is currently an interdisciplinary science that collaborates with other fields such as chemistry, computer science, engineering, linguistics, mathematics, medicine (including neurology), genetics, and allied disciplines including philosophy, physics, and psychology. It also exerts influence on other fields, such as neuroeducation[2] and neurolaw. The term neurobiology is usually used interchangeably with the term neuroscience, although the former refers specifically to the biology of the nervous system, whereas the latter refers to the entire science of the nervous system.
The scope of neuroscience has broadened to include different approaches used to study the molecular, cellular, developmental, structural, functional, evolutionary, computational, and medical aspects of the nervous system. The techniques used by neuroscientists have also expanded enormously, from molecular and cellular studies of individual nerve cells to imaging of sensory and motor tasks in the brain. Recent theoretical advances in neuroscience have also been aided by the study of neural networks.
As a result of the increasing number of scientists who study the nervous system, several prominent neuroscience organizations have been formed to provide a forum to all neuroscientists and educators. For example, the International Brain Research Organization was founded in 1960,[3] the International Society for Neurochemistry in 1963,[4] the European Brain and Behaviour Society in 1968,[5] and the Society for Neuroscience in 1969.[6]

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
