Chocolate Cake

What’s a way to finish your weekend on a positive note? When it comes to Chocolate&Cake I know the answer already! The recipe itself is very simple, requiring the most basic of baking ingredients, plus you don’t need eggs to make it! ( Great, right?) The real work comes with spreading the chocolate glaze in a uniform way.

This delicious cake was a hit at my house after some relatives came over and I couldn’t resist at the delicate bond between chocolate and strawberries! Feel free to add your own variation to the cake with different types of chocolate or even at the end with whipped cream and fruit.
I personally decorated it with just some strawberries and powder sugar.
Enjoy the step-by-step photos and recipe below!
