Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream and Berries

This simple chocolate cake is a favorite of Lucinda Scala Quinn's oldest son, Calder. Topped with whipped cream and sliced strawberries, it makes for an easy and delicious dessert.

Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream and Berries

Source: Mad Hungry, April 2011


  • 2 Busy-Day Dump Cake, baked in 2 8-inch round cake pans
  • 2 pints heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, washed, trimmed and thinly sliced


  1. Bake cakes and cool completely.

  2. Whip the cream to soft peaks, add the sugar and vanilla, and whip again until just stiffened. Do not over mix!

  3. Slice the top off 1 cake round to make a flat surface. Spread bottom cake round with a thick layer of whipped cream. Top with a layer of half the amount of strawberries. Top with the other cake round and spread with another thick layer of whipped cream. Top with remaining strawberries.

  4. Slice and serve with any extra whipped cream and berries on the side.

    This looks wonderful, but I am going to try it using raspberries on top & raspberry jam or preserves in the center...
