Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cake

Oh strawberries. How I love you so! I actually wanted to make a strawberry shortcake but I’ll save that for another day. I didn’t have any heavy whipping cream. But this cake is delicious and really easy to make and a great alternative. And it’s perfect for this spring weather we are having in Chicago! So here we go… Let’s go cut some strawberries πŸ™‚

What you will need:

9 inch springform pan, greased

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Dash of salt
3 tablespoons butter at room temperature
3 tablespoons yogurt (greek or regular, I used vanilla flavor)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup chocolate chips + more for top of cake
About 12 strawberries cut in half (+/-)
Powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), beat butter, yogurt and sugar. Add in egg and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture and milk and beat until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Place the strawberries cut side down on top of batter. Add more chocolate chips on top as well. Here is what it looked like just before going into the oven:

Bake for about 50 minutes until golden brown. Like so:

Let cool on wire rack completely before releasing sides of pan and dusting with powdered sugar. Slice and enjoy!
