For the cake:

Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF). Grease a round cake pan (22 x 10 centimeters (8 2/3 x 4 inches)) with margarine and dust with some flour.

Remove the stem from the strawberries and wash them. Put the strawberries cut into pieces in a blender and blend on high until smooth.

In a bowl, whip the cream with the powdered sugar and the vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Pour the strawberry cream and fold gently with a spatula.

Slice the cake in half with a knife and fill with half of the cream. Cover with the top slice of the cake, spread the top of the cake with the remaining cream and garnish with strawberries.

Refrigerate the cake for approximately 1 hour and serve.
