I love dark chocolate and strawberries so it was only logical for me to come up with this recipe since I also love to bake. Hope y'all enjoy it as much as we did.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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.
