Fresh Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cake

Did you know today is National Chocolate Chip Day? In honor of that I thought I'd re-post a pretty darn good cake...

I like chocolate covered strawberries and figured not only would this Fresh Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cake be a little easier, the extra sugar would help sweeten up the first strawberries of the year. We really enjoyed this cake and thought it was the perfect little dessert for a casual Sunday dinner. Truthfully, I think it would be perfect any time of day and suggest tucking this recipe away for a special brunch or occasion.

We have lots of options here... The original recipe comes from Martha Stewart and she sprinkles an additional 1-2 Tblsp of sugar over the berries before baking, I didn't do that but think sanding sugar would be pretty. You can top it with a sprinkling of powdered sugar before serving if desired. The chocolate chips were an addition from another blogger, and I think they were a good idea:@) She also subbed half yogurt instead of all butter, I used butter.

I'd say this was absolutely perfect as soon as it cooled off fresh out of the oven. The top was crispy, the chocolate chips were still soft and the berries tender and gooey. It's written that this cake stores well, but I think it's best eaten as soon as possible-share it with the neighbors if you have any leftover!

The cake almost has the appearance of a cobbler with the way it bubbles up around the berries. I happened to have a 10" pie plate so that's what I used, or use any similar sized baking dish.
I think you'll like this if you try it folks,

  3. This does sound great, Lynn, and I like that it’s a smaller size dessert. I like the idea of warm from the oven with the melty chocolate chips.
