I specialize in Gooey Butter Cakes and make 58 different flavors. This one is one of my best sellers and my favorite. Using fresh fruit makes such a difference in flavor! It is rich creamy deliciousness.

Ooey, gooey, and oh so creamy, this gooey butter cake is such a treat. It is like a chocolate covered strawberry, in cake form. Decadent and rich, we loved every bite. Our chocolate chips didn't swirl as lovely as we would have liked so we ended up spreading them a little bit. Still delicious! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Double Chocolate Strawberry Gooey Butter Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together dry cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick of melted butter until a smooth dough forms. Press in the bottom of a buttered 9x13 pan.
  2. In the same bowl, mix remaining eggs, cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, the second stick of butter (melted), and strawberries until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour on top of the dough in pan. Drizzle with strawberry preserves and swirl to make it pretty.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Don't over bake, you want the middle to be a little bit jiggly. It will set as it cools. As soon as you remove the cake from the oven, sprinkle with the mini chocolate chips.
  5. After about 3 minutes when they are soft, use a spoon or knife to swirl the melted chips on the top. Serve with whipped cream.
