Rich, buttery, tender Strawberry Pound Cake swirled with fresh strawberries and smothered in smooth, silky Chocolate Ganache. 1000X better than any cake mix and so drool worthy everyone will beg you for the recipe. BEG I tell you! AND keep scrolling for an amazing Giveaway!
My good blogging friend, Cat, from the The Rustic Willow, is celebrating her blogiversary, so a few of us got together to throw a virtual “blogiversary” party with cakes, and cupcakes galore AND the Ultimate Foodie Giveaway! (enter at bottom of post)
And did I mention cake?
For my cake for dear Cat, I knew I wanted something strawberry – because its summer!
And because strawberries are amazing and juicy and sweet. And because I crave strawberries every time I pass them in the store and every time I drive past the fields and fields of strawberries by my house.
And because they won’t be in season forever so you need to get your strawberry fill NOW. Like right now with this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pound Cake! Think chocolate covered strawberries but in strawberry, buttery cake form…I can’t stop thinking…
I first started this recipe with my own adaptation of the popular strawberry cake recipes that start with a white box mix and add gelatin. The cake was good, but not amazing. So I decided to take my favorite ever sour cream pound cake recipe and add fresh strawberries and strawberry gelatin (Jell-0) to the mix. Best decision ever.
The cake is rich, and soft and super moist and tastes like strawberries! Its way better than the box kind with only 10 minutes more effort. So worth it. I could have topped the cake with a lemon glaze and I am sure that still would have been delish, but the cake’s richness demanded an equally decadent adornment AKA 5 Minute Silky Chocolate Ganache. To live for.
Don’t let the word “ganache” scare you. As you might have guessed – it takes less than 5 minutes to make and is smooth, creamy and chocolaticious!
Almost as much as you want this cake.
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pound Cake. Possibly the very best bite of summer.
