Chocolate Covered Strawberries in Cake Form!

Chocolate coated strawberries are heavenly. Strawberries dipped in Greek yogurt are delicious. Chocolate Greek yogurt is guiltlessly sinful. And cake is just the bomb. How do all of these things tie together? The following recipe for a chocolate cake with a strawberry- Greek yogurt swirl will solve (almost) all problems in life and provide one of the best treats around.

Chocolate Cake with a Strawberry-Greek Yogurt Swirl


Chocolate Cake with a Strawberry-Greek Yogurt Swirl
1 ½ cups cocoa powder
2 cups rolled oats, blended into a flour
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
½ cup strawberry jelly

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 12” cake pan with oil. Mix all the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, applesauce, and buttermilk. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing until there are no more lumps. Spread the batter out evenly in your pan. Whisk together the yogurt and jelly. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture around the top of the cake and swirl in with a knife. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cake to sit for 10 minutes before slicing into it.
