Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This cake is really good and great for Valentine's Day! It's rich, moist and bursting with a good dark chocolate flavor with under tones of a rum flavor from the extract. The strawberry in the cake is very subtle. The chocolate and strawberry pie filling topping is fabulous! This cake is beautiful and easy to make - even a beginner could make this recipe.
