Chocolate Strawberry Cake

FFS Member Kristin M. says, "This is a cake I made today with the strawberries.  Topped it with some chocolate icing and cut strawberries.  Could be topped with whip cream and strawberries or a cream cheese frosting. The cake has a hint of strawberry taste but not overwhelming.  I would probably do 1 1/2 cups of strawberries next time to give it more strawberry flavor."
