Chocolate Velvet Cake with Strawberries

You’ve been waiting all week haven’t you!  This is definitely drool worthy and is super easy to make and a great recipe for the kiddos to lend a helping hand in!  They can dip the strawberries in chocolate and braise the cake with Strawberry jam! This was made in the Stoneware Fluted Pan from Pampered Chef and are you ready?…..IN THE MICROWAVE!

Man was this good!!  And the pan was awesome of course. We laid it upside down on a beautiful bamboo platter for a good ten minutes to rest before lifting the pan.  Viola! It came out so pretty, no sticking.

You can find the main dish we served with this (and giveaway) and see more pictures from the Party.

    take an angel food cake, ring shaped, and slice in half horizontally. Scoop the lower layer, making a trough. Fill the trough with blueberries or strawberries. Place the top layer back on and spray whipped cream or whipped topping
