Rich, buttery, tender Strawberry Pound Cake swirled with fresh strawberries and smothered in smooth, silky Chocolate Ganache.
This Strawberry Pound Cake recipe is my ode to a Chocolate Covered Strawberry! It boasts the fresh, tangy sweetness of strawberries complimented by the rich, decadence of chocolate. This Strawberry Pound Cake is 1000X better than any strawberry cake mix and so drool worthy everyone will beg you for the recipe. BEG I tell you!
It’ summer so it’s time for strawberries! 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 Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberry Coffee Cake, Strawberry Cheesecake Pie, Strawberry Shortcakes, Strawberry Syrup, Strawberry Salad and now this Strawberry Pound Cake! Are you giddy for strawberries yet?!
And because strawberries 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 recipe! Think chocolate covered strawberries but in strawberry, buttery cake form…I can’t stop thinking…
I first started this Strawberry Pound Cake 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. Best Strawberry Pound Cake recipe ever.
The Strawberry Pound 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!
Possibly the very best bite of summer.
