Recipe by little_wing
READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Grease and lightly flour cake pan(s).
  • Mix eggs and mayo with electric mixer until smooth.
  • Add wine and beat until combined.
  • Add cake mix, salt and vanilla and beat for 3 minutes.
  • Pour into pan(s) and bake according to box directions, but check 5-10 minute early as this cake tends to bake "fast".
  • When cake is almost cool make glaze as follows:
  • Melt chocolate chips in microwave or double boiler being careful not to burn. If microwaving, start with about 45 sec., stir and continue in 10 sec. increments., stirring after each.
  • Whisk in butter, cream, salt and vanilla one at a time.
  • Cool slightly, then drizzle over cake.
  • Arrange strawberries whole or sliced, whatever looks pretty to you, over and around the cake and drizzle a bit more chocolate over them if you like. The glaze and berries are a good combination on their own! Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
