WOW!!! I can't thank u enough for posting this recipe. I baked this for my husband's b-day just recently & he simply loved it. A lot of choc cake recipes I was finding start w/ a boxed mix & I wanted to do a cake from scratch :-) The addition of strawberries was also a request from my hubby, so this recipe was such the perfect find!!! I don't make a lot of cakes & this recipe didn't disappoint. The cake halves baked for 30 min & removing them from the pan was a bit tricky--I was shown a trick where I put the wire rack over the cakes, then flipped the rack :-). I used a store bought frosting--someday I'll try homemade! Thanks so much for this recipe! FYI--170 g of butter is 3/4 cup!
