SCRUMPTIOUS STRAWBERRY CAKE

THIS. CAKE. It practically melts in your mouth! It was a huge hit at Andrie’s birthday party and even as dedicated chocolate lovers, this recipe is a favorite in the Miller house! I’ve made it as a sheet cake (which is what this recipe is for) and also doubled the recipe to make a 3-tier with a dozen cupcakes using the leftover batter. For the tiered cake (pictured - I KNOW I KNOW, IT’S A LITTLE LOPSIDED) I used good ol’ Betty Crocker cream cheese frosting in a can.

Enjoy! Oh, and invite me over when you make it!

I had to snag the only photo I had of it from Andrie’s birthday party - I’ll get some detail photos next time I make this - which, trust me, won’t be long.
