Once the cake hits the oven, it’s time to move on to the oh-so-shiny chocolate ganache glaze.
Pour it on to your heart’s content then top your dessert crown with endless quartered strawberry jewels to complete the chocolate-covered strawberry effect (but in way better form than the O.G.).
Dense, moist cake meets rich chocolate glaze meets fresh, juicy berries. Win, win and win!

My family loved this cake! I made it for a random Tuesday because it’s 2020 and we needed a little more cake in our life. It was moist, flavorful and beautiful!
I’m thrilled you enjoyed the recipe, Mary!
Can this be made ahead of time – like say a week?
Hi there! I wouldn’t recommend making it that far in advance. You could make it a day ahead of time and keep it stored securely with plastic wrap.
