Easy Chocolate Cake with Caramelized Plums and Pecans

schneller Schokokuchen

What my go-to recipe for chocolate cake is? Definitely this one. I don’t even know when or where I picked it up. It probably was passed down to me from my mom as we spent several years in the U.S. in the 80’s, German recipes are usually a bit more complicated. It has been very popular among my relatives. I love this recipe because it can be whipped up in about five minutes. Literally.

One thing I know for sure is that I have seen this cake around a lot. At a lot of festivities. I mean, what beats a cake you can whip up so quickly and which is so versatile? I love that it is so moist! Originally it was a sheet cake, often served with nuts and frosted with some chocolate frosting. Sometimes it was made with cherries, my sister also used it as a birthday cake for one of her children and used smarties, M&Ms etc. to make it more festive. This recipe can also be the base for a bundt cake.

Strawberry Chocolate Cake

The strawberry season is almost over. At least here in the north of Germany. For that reason I wanted to make use of all the strawberries I could find. And baked this strawberry chocolate cake.

If you are into chocolate (who isn’t?) and if you like fresh berries the same way I do, this one is for you.
