For the Chocolate Cake

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup soured milk
  • 1 cup black coffee
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla flavouring

For the Chocolate Fudge Frosting

  • 12 ounces chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • pinch salt
  • 4 1/2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Ganache for Dipping

  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream


To prepare the Chocolate Cake

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9 inch cake pans.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool completely on a wire rack.

To prepare the Chocolate Fudge Frosting

  1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter completely, then add the cream and salt and heat just to the boiling point.
  2. Remove form heat and pour in the chocolate chips. Make sure all of the chips are covered in the cream and butter mixture.
  3. Let stand for 5 minutes before stirring together until smooth.
  4. Add the vanilla and slowly beat in the icing sugar with an electric mixer until the frosting comes together to a spreadable consistency. If your chocolate is too hot you may have to cool the frosting and beat it with an electric mixer again when it's cooler.
  5. Depending upon the quality of the chocolate you use, you may have to add a little more icing sugar to bring the frosting to a spreadable consistency.

To prepare the Chocolate Ganache for Dipping

  1. In a small saucepan over low flame, heat the cream to almost boiling.
  2. Add the chocolate chips and remove from the heat.
  3. Let the mixture stand for about 5 minutes, then stir until smooth.
  4. Wash and pat dry the strawberries in paper towels before dipping them into the chocolate mixture.
  5. Place the dipped strawberries on a wax paper, parchment paper or a silicone lined baking sheet and refrigerate for a half hour before using them to garnish the fudge cake.
