This modern spin on a favorite flavor combination, chocolate and strawberries, would make a wonderful cake for a special birthday, a festive finale for a July Fourth party (as a chocolatey alternative to strawberry shortcake), or a showstopping dessert for a dinner party with friends. The cake is coated with sweetened whipped cream, then topped with strawberries and dark chocolate pieces. The cake itself is airy, thanks to beaten egg whites folded into the batter.

  • 4 eggs
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 150 grams baking chocolate
  • 125 grams butter (or margarine)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 200 milliliters sour cream (for whipping)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • strawberries (to taste)
  • 50 grams baking chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
