Step By Step Instructions

Step One: Preheat Oven and Prepare Your 9-Inch Cake Pans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Grease the cooking sprays with shortening and dust with flour.

Step Two: Beat Butter and Sugar

Using your electric mixer, beat the butter on medium speed until it becomes creamy. Then, gradually add your sugar to your butter. Beat until light and fluffy, then add the egg yolks one at a time, mixing until incorporated.

Step Three: Combine Cake Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt

In a medium whisking bowl, combine the cake flour, baking powder, and salt together until combined.

Step Four: Combine the Dry and Wet Ingredients of The Batter

Add the dry ingredients into the butter mixture in intervals, alternating with adding in the milk. Begin and end with flour mixture and mix at low speed until just combined. Mix in the lemon zest and juice into the cake batter.

Step Five: Beat Egg Whites

In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Carefully stir in one-third of the egg whites to the batter then fold in the remaining egg whites.

Step Six: Bake the Cake

Evenly pour the cake batter into the three cake pans and bake for 16-20 minutes. Check if the lemon cakes are done by using a toothpick, if the toothpick comes out clean, they are done. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Step Seven: Make the Filling

Blend the strawberries in a food processor or blender until smooth. Use a mesh strainer to separate the juice from the pulp and disregard the pulp. Add the strawberries to the saucepan with sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch.

Heat the jam mixture on medium heat until it begins to boil, then whisk continuously for one minute. Remove the mixture from heat and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the jam filling for at least two hours.
