Amazing Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake

I mean does that not just sound delish!

This I would say is between a cake and a torte really.

The cake portion is more like a brownie cake.

It’s rich and only needs one layer. You could make another layer but I don’t think it’s necessary.

My son LOVES chocolate covered strawberries and he has been dreaming up this cake.

So I finally decided it was time to give the boy what he wants and it didn’t disappoint.

This recipe looks fancy but is really easy to whip up.

In fact, I whipped this up between power outages this winter for Valentine’s day.

We lost power for multiple days after a huge ice storm. That story is for another post.

Spread into the prepared cake pan and smooth out.  Bake for 30-35 minutes. 

Do not over-bake. It will come out clean on a toothpick in the center.

Wash and dry then cut up the strawberries into slices and set them aside.

Once it’s cooled for an hour or so start making your ganache.

Put ingredients into a small bowl and heat in the microwave at 30 seconds intervals, stirring between until melted.

Do not overcook.

Ganache

It will look like it won’t mix, but it will continue to mix as you stir it. This takes only a minute or so in total.

Spread a layer of ganache onto the cake, let it drip down the sides.

Let the chocolate on the strawberries harden before serving.

If you still have remaining ganache and strawberries you can dip them in the ganache and let the chocolate harden on them.
