A friend of mine shared this recipe with me years ago and it has remained a favorite of mine and my entire family.  In addition to tasting amazing, Strawberry Truffle Cake uses simple ingredients.  You probably have most of them on hand already!  And it is really easy to make!  I make it every year for Valentine’s Day!

Perfect Valentines Dessert Recipe Strawberry and Chocolate


You start by baking a boxed devils food cake according to the package directions.  Then you let it cool completely.  Next you make a simple ganache by heating up cream and butter and pouring it over chopped chocolate until it is nice and melted.  Once the ganache is ready, you will combine the cake, ganache and chopped strawberries to create a rich chocolate strawberry truffle cake mixture.  This will freeze in a springform pan for about 45 minutes.  Then when you pull it out you can garnish it with strawberries and melted white chocolate drizzle!

  3. Lorie says:

    YUM!!! It reminds me of a cake pop! I might have to give this a shot.

    I am going to link up to this tomorrow!

  4. Kriste says:

    It looks so yummy and fudgy! Maybe when I’m done trying so hard to lose weight I’ll have to make it. I just don’t trust myself lately with chocolate in the house! I have to ask… Where in the world did you find strawberries this time of year? I haven’t seen any in the stores!

  5. Jacqueline says:

    Yummmm, I can’t wait to try this! I’m always looking for something different, and this sounds really neat!

  7. Eva says:

    Que delicioso! And your baby is sooooooo gosh darn cute!

  8. Jacqueline says:

    This is REALLY good! I used whipped cream on top instead of white chocolate, and really liked the light fresh touch balancing out the intensity of the chocolate. I also used frozen strawberries, since that’s all those are the only organic strawberries available to me at this time of year, but that wasn’t a problem. Something else worth noting in case you have lots leftover (I’m single): it freezes well. One warning for fellow dishwasher-less bakers: this recipe involves a lot of dishes!
