Ingredients
  

  • 3 eggs whites (at room temperature)
  • 175 g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 150 g dark chocolate
  • 450 ml double cream
  • 2 tblsp icing sugar
  • 350 g fresh strawberries

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 140°C (275°F) (Gas Mark 1).
  • 2nd line baking paper with baking trays. Draw a rectangle of 10 x 25 cm 3 on the baking paper. You can place only two rectangles in a baking tray.
  • Whisk the egg whites until the soft peak stage.
  • Add the caster sugar (I add mine all at once) and continue to whisk until the mixture is stiff and glossy.
  • Add the vinegar and cornflour and whisk for a couple more minutes. The mixture should be able to hold its shape if the bowl is turned upside down.
  • Prepare an icing bag with a large star nozzle and fill with the meringue mixture
  • Using your template, pipe (10cm) lines until you have filled all three rectangles.
  • Bake in the oven for 1 hour. After 1 hour turn the oven off and leave the meringues to cool in the oven.
  • When your meringues are cool, melt the chocolate and spread it over 2 of the meringue layers making sure you go right to the edge.
  • Place in the fridge for about 10 minutes to harden.
  • Assemble just before serving by whipping the double cream with some icing sugar and chopping your strawberries (leave about 8 whole ones for decoration).
  • Place one chocolate meringue on your serving dish and spread with one third of the cream and top with half the chopped strawberries.
  • Place the second chocolate meringue on top and spread with another third of the cream and the remaining chopped strawberries.
  • Place the plain meringue layer on top and spread with the remaining cream.
  • Arrange the whole strawberries on top and drizzle over any remaining chocolate.

    Chocolate and Strawberry Cake.This Strawberry Chocolate Cake is very easy and moist. There is nothing better than a combination of chocolate and strawberries.

    It means that it is simple, that is, perfect on its own or decorated with a piece of whipped cream.I think I made this cake for my daughter and Italians, the love of strawberries is unlimited.

    Especially girl, no strawberries are safe in this house, especially strawberry chocolate cake!Strawberry Chocolate Cake Chocolate icing, chocolate ganache and sweet strawberry recipe-chocolate cake! This is the BEST chocolate cake recipe!Josh and the kids fired me out of the kitchen and baked me a special Strawberry Chocolate Cake to celebrate my birthday. Made with love and lots of chocolate. It was the best cake ever, and today I share the recipe because you have to make it for Valentine’s Day.This is the ultimate chocolate cake. Chocolate cake is perfection, super moist and super rich, just as I like it. I also have a thick layer of my favorite chocolate buttercream icing. Normally I am not a very icy person, but this icing is heaven. I can eat a spoonful and I did. I entered the kitchen to taste a little 🙂
