Book group at my house last night out on the patio to discuss “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr, the 2015 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction, not a bad read you should check it out but I digress, from the food! Decided to make this little piece of heaven which was outstanding! Bob had a piece and texted me saying that it is one of his new all time favorite cakes! It was pretty dreamy and it makes 2 cakes! It’s a Six Sisters’ Stuff recipe, so you should try both the book and the cake, but then again I’m not the boss of you but if I was . . .
1 chocolate cake mix plus ingredients to make cake
2 cups whipping cream
4 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups diced strawberries
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1 Hershey’s chocolate bar
1 Prepare cake mix as directed on box. Heat Belgian waffle iron and spray with cooking spray. Use generous 1/2 cup batter to make 6 waffles. (I used a 1/2 cup and came up with 8 not quite full waffles so make sure it’s a full 1/2 cup.) Remove and let cool.
2 Beat together whipping cream, pudding mix and powdered sugar until thick then fold in diced strawberries.
3 Place 1 waffle on serving platter, top with whipped cream and repeat 2 more times then assemble the second cake in the same way.
4 Make frosting by beating together all frosting ingredients adding more sugar or milk to get desired consistency.
5 Carefully spread half of the frosting on each cake. Top with sliced strawberries and grated chocolate.
