Rave dessert recipe

I've posted before that every Sunday night we host 8-10 bible college boys over for dinner, plus a few friends. We are so blessed to do this, and we enjoy the boys so much. I tried this dessert this past Sunday, and oh my goodness-it is a keeper! Sorry, no photos..the kitchen was a madhouse as we were assembling these and passing them out.

Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake
serves 8, prep time 30 min., cook time 30 min

3 squares (1 oz. each) semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup Shedd's Spread County Crock Spreadable butter w/canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup water
2 cups strawberries, sliced, with 1 tbsp. sugar
2 cups sweetened whipped cream

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, grease 9-inch round baking pan. Microwave chocolate with spreadable butter at High until chocolate is melted; stir until smooth. Beat in sugar, vanilla, eggs, 1/4 cup flour, baking soda and salt. Alternately beat in remaining flour and water until blended. Pour into pan. Bake 30 minutes; cool on wire rack.

2. Slice cake horizontally. Layer strawberries and whipped cream in between halves.

What I added: I doubled the amount of strawberries and taking half; mashed them in a bowl with a potato masher, squeezed in the juice from half a fresh orange, and put in 2 tsp. of sugar, set bowl in refrigerator for a few hours. I put whipped cream and mashed strawberries on bottom half of cake and then put whipped cream and sliced strawberries on top. I also tripled this recipe, cuz we had lots of hungry boys.

it was really, really yummy.
