Heavenly chocolate cake with strawberry cream


Most of us love rich chocolate cake & that too with strawberry cream filling. Isn't sounds great ? Myself & my son loved even the last bite of cake. It taste yum :) Sometimes, we bribe things to get work done & this cake is my weapon. Best cake for celebrations. Pravin likes to have some sweet after his dinner & this cake was perfect. He enjoyed to the core. Enjoy baking !!!

Ingredients:

For the cake:
  1. 2 cups flour
  2. 1 1/2 cups sugar
  3. 1 1/4 cups milk
  4. 1/2 cup butter
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 2 eggs
  7. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the filling:

  1. 1 can (21 oz.) strawberry, chilled.
  2. 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  3. 1 cup heavy cream, whipped
  4. Chocolate shavings
  5. Strawberries for decorating

Method :

1. Cream butter and sugar together. Add the vanilla essence & eggs one at time.

2. Sieve the flour, cocoa powder & baking soda together.

3. Fold the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternating with the milk.

4. Pour into two 9 inch round cake pans that have been greased and floured. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Cool thoroughly.

5. Whip the heavy cream with sugar. Cool it. Also, drain the strawberries & keep aside. Preserve the syrup as well.

6. Slice the cake horizontally to make layers. Place one layer on flat plate & brush the syrup.

7. Spread the whipped cream & top them with strawberries. Place the second layer of cake & repeat.

8. Finally, decorate the cake with the remaining cream, chocolate shavings & strawberries on the top & sides.
