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.

This chocolate cake is beautiful and easy to make - even a beginner could make this recipe. It's rich, moist, and bursting with a good dark chocolate flavor with undertones of rum flavor from the extract. The strawberry margarita drink mix in the cake is very subtle. Chocolate and strawberry pie filling on top topping is fabulous! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Dark Chocolate Strawberry Margarita Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together with a whisk. Then add all other ingredients and mix with heavy duty mixer until well incorporated. (Be sure to reserve the items needed for icing and set aside.)
  2. Pour the batter into a heavily greased and floured bundt cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes or until it tests done. Allow to sit in cake pan for a few minutes before turning out onto plate.
  3. Icing: Place the chocolate chips in the microwave and cook for a couple of minutes until warm and melting. Whisk them until smooth. Thin until pouring consistency with the buttermilk or heavy cream. When pourable, drizzle over the top of the cake. Then take the reserved pie filling and spoon around the top. The dark chocolate flavor with the rum flavoring and strawberries is delicious!
