Chocolate cake with strawberries

Strawberries and chocolate are a love match.

They reveal the best of each other. So anytime you make a chocolate dessert, think about strawberries or raspberries to add on the top. They are not only pretty, they will also give a fresh finish to any indulgent chocolate cake. I don't know anybody in my house who can resist this super moist chocolate cake with strawberries.

Yields 1 cake for 6/8 people - Prep Time: 20 min - Cook Time: 14 min - Total Time: 34 min

Ingredients for the cake

For the strawberry topping:

  • 1 lb of fresh strawberries, washed, dried, and cut in halves
  • 1/4 C of Crushed pistachios (unsalted) (You can cut whole pistachios without the shell, using a sharp knife)


  • 1 sauce pan
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 round cake pan 8"
  • Baking spray or parchment paper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place the butter in the saucepan. Melt the butter on medium heat.
  3. When the butter is totally melted, stop the heat. Pour in the chocolate lava cake baking mix.
  4. Whisk until the chocolate is melted.
  5. Add eggs and mix until combined.
  6. Spray baking spray (or lay parchment paper) on the cake pan.
  7. Pour the batter.
  8. Bake for 14 min. Let cool down.
  9. Add the half strawberries on the top. And sprinkle with pistachios.

And voila, bon appétit!
