Chocolate Cake with Strawberries

Chocolate and Strawberry CakeThis was my husbands choice for our Sunday dessert and I can’t take credit for this because he made it! We have family for dinner every Sunday and it is so much fun deciding what I am going to cook up to surprise them with. They’re our guinea pigs for new recipes and we welcome their comments!
