Cin's Strawberry-Chocolate Pound Cake
I like creating different pound cakes. They always end up making such a pretty presentation. Great to take to a pot luck or have at a family dinner.
- 1 box
- strawberry cake mix (i used pillsbury moist supreme)
- (4 serving) pkg. chocolate instant pudding mix
- 1/3 c
- oil (i use enova brand)
- 1/3 c
- diet strawberry preserves (i used one named fifty-50)
- 3/4 c
- luke-warm water
- room temp. eggs
- a pinch of sea salt and a squirt of lemon
- the glaze:
- 3 Tbsp
- chocolate syrup (i used ''got milk'' brand)
- 1 tsp
- 1/2 tsp
- pure vanilla
- 2/3 c
- powder sugar
Blend together on low with hand mixer, then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Then I sprinkled sugar-crystals over the top of batter.
Whisk ingredients together well and drizzle over cooled cake letting it run down sides.
When cake was slice it had the appearance inside like a richdarker version of a red-velvet-cake).
You can definitely see some bits of strawberries from the preserves throught the cake.
Garnish with slices of Strawberries on top of glaze if you'd like.
You can just dust the cake with powdered sugar if you don't want a glaze it.
Another good way to glaze this cake is to take some of the Strawberry Preserves and heat, stirring, until it's becomes thinner like a syrup; poke some holes into cake and pour over the cake...or mix it with powdered sugar to make a thicker strawberry preserve glaze.
