Place the eggs, sugar and lemon zest in a bowl, mix using the whisk on a mixer until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. Combine the flour and salt, carefully mix in. Transfer the sponge mixture to a tin lined with baking paper, smooth down.

To bake

Approx. 30 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 170°C. Remove from the oven, leave to cool on a cooling rack, slice the sponge into thirds.


Mix the water and sugar in a pan, bring to the boil. Simmer the syrup until the sugar has dissolved completely. Stir in the vanilla sugar, leave to cool.

Cream cheese filling

Mix the cream cheese, mascarpone, icing sugar and vanilla sugar, carefully fold in the whipped cream.

To layer the cake

Place one third of the sponge on a cake plate, cover with ⅓ of the drizzle, top with ⅓ of the cream cheese filling and ⅓ of the berries. Place the second sponge on top, repeat the process with the remaining ingredients until all of the ingredients have been used up. Decorate the cake with a little mint and dust with a little icing sugar.
