Mad about Strawberry Chocolate Cake Again

Strawberry Chocolate Cake

I made this cake for a family event this past Saturday. It’s a variation of this cake.

The layering on the inside is the same as before - 2 layers of chocolate genoise sandwiched with a rich mascarpone cream and hidden strawberries. It’s just decorated a little differently on the outside with lady finger sponges, cocoa powder, shaved chocolate and pretty ribbons for fun.

Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Last night I finally came up with a way to use the 1/3 cup of dried cranberries that had been sitting in my pantry and on my conscience for the last couple of weeks. They weren’t going to go bad anytime soon, but there really isn’t much I can do with that odd amount of berries and I don’t fancy eating them just like that.

Rather than let them go to waste, I decided to be adventurous and combine the tiny cranberries, along with generous chunks of dark chocolate in a muffin batter. In the spirit of experimentation, I even substituted sour cream with low fat natural yoghurt.

The muffins were surprisingly delicious. The dark chocolate was wonderfully gooey fresh out of the oven and offset the tartness of the cranberries perfectly. This new combination is a definite keeper!
