Biskvit with Berries (Moist Russian Sponge Cake)

Biskvit with Berries (Moist Russian Sponge Cake)

Biskvit is a moist Russian Sponge cake. Not like a lot of the typical Russian cakes that require a lot of work, this is the easiest recipe ever!

I’m sure we all have that one “go to” cake. Well this one is mine, it takes so fast to whip up, and you probably have all the ingredients in your home right now! Only 6 ingredients for the cake and cream plus the frozen berries! and viol-la you have your self a delicious cake, that tastes like you put so much work into it ;) I love the frozen berries topped on this cake, you can also put a layer inside if you want more, It gives it a nice “sourish” taste if you know what i mean..

If you use cake box mix please never again, this will take you faster then a cake box mix and its so much better!!

Thanks to my cousin vickie for sharing this recipe with me :)
