Pin Chocolate Cake with Strawberries here.
“Let them eat cake.” While there is uncertainty who if anyone actually said that, there is absolutely, positively no uncertainty about this cake. This chocolate cake is made with three different types of chocolate, three. Then you have the pop of flavor from fresh strawberries. To top it all off, I’ve reduced the sugar and the fat. Greek yogurt magically takes the place of half of the butter leaving an utterly moist, fudge like cake.
In other words, this is a cake you can eat. Although you still need to portion control. I am not giving you free license to eat the entire cake. For this reason, think about eating a slice and freezing the rest. This cake, in fact, freezes beautifully. You and your family can enjoy a slice and freeze the rest for a rainy day or a big chocolate craving day. Better yet, share this cake with your friends and neighbors. There is plenty for everyone. Share the chocolate love!
