Strawberry Cream Cake

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by PaulaG

DH is diabetic and I was looking a different cake for him to enjoy without to much guilt. This recipe comes from The only thing I did was cut the recipe in half, make it in a 6-inch sprinform pan and use chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet baking chocolate. If you don't have a 6-inch pan you can use an 8 inch cake pan or tart pan.

I made this for the 4th of July this year, my family enjoyed it. I personally thought it was a bit too jello-y, but was light and good. I was really happy that it turned out well because my father is diabetic and lots of diabetic desserts turn out not so well. It was very refreshing. Thank you :)
