For the Cake:
  • All purpose floor/Maida : 1 and 1/2 cup
  • Butter : 1 cup
  • Sugar : 1 cup ( powdered ) 
  • Egg : 4 small eggs/ 3 large
  • Baking soda : 1tsp
  • Cocoa powder : 4 tbsp
  • Choco chips : 1/2 cup
  • Coke : 2 tbsp
  • * You can also use ready mix for choco cake , and prepare cake accordingly
For Frosting:
  • Fresh Heavy cream : 1 1/2 cup
  • Powdered Sugar : 1/2 cup
Sugar syrup:
  • Sugar : 1 cup
  • Water : 1 cup
  • Strawberry: 1 cup ( chopped - small pieces )
  • Grated Chocolate : 1 cup 
  • Coke : 1/2 cup
  • Sieve together flour,Cocoa powder and baking powder and keep aside.
  • Beat sugar in butter till it becomes a smooth paste.
  • Beat egg in a separate bowl and strain it and then add it to the butter in small quantities,
  • Then Add flour 1tbsp at a time and keep on mixing till it becomes smooth paste.
  • Add choco chips and mix it.
  • Preheat oven to 325 F
  • In a baking dish ( i used 9 inch round ) , grease the sides and bottom with butter and sprinkle flour over it.
  • Add the cake mixture which we prepared into greased baking dish.
  • Once the oven is preheated , place the cake in oven and bake it for about 40 mins( until tooth pick inserted at the center of cake comes out clean )
  • If its not cooked keep it for some more time -10 mins.
  • Once the cake is ready, allow it to cool. Then cut it horizontally in to 3 slices/layers.

Let us prepare frosting,
  • In a bowl take about 1 1/2 cup of heavy cream, add 1/2 cup sugar or more depending on how much sweet you need. I used half cup. It was sweet enough.
  • Place the bowl over ice and then whip it continuously down to up. The cream will thicken and you'l get nice frosting after about 5-10 mins.
  • Place it in refrigerator to cool.

Now comes the decorating part:
  • Place all the ingredients ready on the table.
  • Place one layer of cake on a plate. Sprinkle about 2 tbsp of sugar syrup to the cake evenly, and also sprinkle 2 tbsp of coke evenly. The cake looks moist and it becomes soft when you do this .
  • Then add frosting over the cake and spread it evenly. Add grated chocolate over it. Then add chopped strawberries.
  • After this place another slice of cake over this and follow the same instructions as we did for the first slice. 
  • And after the place the 3rd layer.Sprinkle Water and coke as above and then add little thick layer of frosting and sprinkle grated chocolate. 
  • Then decorate strawberry on top as you need.
  • Chill it in refrigerator until you serve.

*I actually used ready mix for the chocolate cake in this picture. It was very easy to prepare. I just added water, butter, egg, choco chips and 2 tbsp coke then prepared the cake.
* Use proper cream while preparing icing.I once used fresh cream and it tasted really bad.So use heavy cream.
