Strawberry season is almost over here in North Carolina. Usually they are so sweet and yummy, all I do is wash and eat. But this week I decided to actually cook something with the strawberries I got at the Duke Farmer’s Market. This is what I found in Simply Organic.

1 stick unsalted butter

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1 cup sugar

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup milk

1 pint strawberries, sliced

Pre-heat the oven to 350F. Combine the butter, cocoa, and 1/4 cup of the sugar in a 3-quart glass baking dish. Place in the oven for a few minutes to melt the butter. Remove from the oven and stir until well blended.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and the remaining 3/4 cup sugar. Add the milk and stir until smooth. Spoon this over the chocolate, but don’t stir. Scatter the strawberries on top.

Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until your cake tester comes out clean. Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving.

This was great with some local vanilla ice cream from Maple View Farms, and some chocolate sauce. Yum!
