For the rest of the ingredients, they are likely to be sitting in your store cupboard. The procedure is really straightforward, so we recommend this dessert for beginners!
Wash the strawberries and dry them thoroughly. Mix the sugar and flour in a bowl, stirring well to remove any lumps. Break the eggs into a separate bowl and beat with a fork. Then add the eggs to the flour mixture, stirring well. Finally, add the milk. Mix well. Grease a baking dish and arrange the strawberries on the bottom of it, cut into large pieces. Pour over the flour, milk and egg mixture. Bake at 180 °C for about 40 minutes. Allow the cake to cool and sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
