Strawberry Chocolate Delight

I felt like celebration mood yesterday!! Nop, just enjoying my bakery thing, that's all ! My son was asking me to bake him a chocolate cake a few days ago. He loves strawberries and he loves chocolate. So, ended up making him this Strawberry Chocolate Delight. I love it as well and hope you will like it too.

Ingredients for Sponge :
5 eggs, separated
150gm icing sugar
1/2 tspn vanilla essence
30gm cocoa powder

- whisk egg white untill soft peak form.
- add in 100gm of icing sugar a little at a time untill sugar dissolves.
- in another bowl, beat egg yolk untill thick and creamy.
- then add in vanilla essence, the rest of icing sugar and cocoa powder.
- next fold the egg yolk mixture into egg white untill well blended.
- pour the batter into a swiss roll baking tray, lined with parchment paper.
- and bake for 20 mins at 185'c.
- once the sponge is ready; immediately loosen the edge.
- and gently remove the sponge over onto an aluminium foil.
- peel away the parchment paper as well and leave cool.

Cream Cheese Fillings :
250gm cream cheese, softened
150ml whipped cream
1/2 tspn vanilla essence
50gm white chocolate, grated
200gm fresh strawberries , cut small
extra grated dark chocolate for decoration
- beat cream cheese, whipped cream and vanilla essence untill soft.
- stir in grated white chocolate and leave aside.
*******************************************************************
Method :
- cut the cake into 3 equal layers.
- place an over size sheet of foil over a 9" loaf tray.
- place one layer of cake onto the tray.
- spread more or less one third of cream cheese mixture onto a layer of cake.
- then top with chopped strawberries.
- repeat the layering and ending with layer of cake.
- reserve the balance cream cheese mixture.
- fold the foil and wrap the cake nicely.
- chill the cake for one to two hours before spreading the top layer of cream mixture.
- then decorate with grated dark chocolate and strawberries.
- and icing sugar for dusting.
* It's best to chilled over night.
Hey, not bad huh!!! Actually, it tasted really really good. Not creamy at all! The cream cheese mixture became a little thicken like white chocolate after chilled and not too sweet as well. In addition, with fresh strawberries. Mm..mm..!!
My son can't wait to have a slice of it. So, I have no choice! Just cut him a slice and then quickly keep it back to the fridge untill the next day.
I thought of taking a few shots in the next day but ended up taking nothing! Because everything just gone so fast! I don't even have a chance to take one shot of it.
