Healthy 7-Layer Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake

 

This 7-Layer Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake is the ULTIMATE crowd-pleaser to impress!

The Strawberry Cake layers are moist, fluffy, and full of sweet strawberry flavor, and they’re stacked layer after layer with the richest of the rich (yet guilt-free!) Chocolate Frostings.  Every delicious bite tastes like a chocolate-covered strawberry in cake form…  you’d never know it’s sugar free and gluten free too!

I previewed this cake for y’all on my Instagram and wow, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so many DM’s of pure excitement!

Seven-Layer Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake (sugar free, gluten free)

As I explained in a previous post, I moved into a house with my boyfriend about a month and a half ago.  It wasn’t a smooth transition at all because the house wasn’t nearly as good as we thought it was after touring it (you can read allll the dirty deets here).

Since I was without internet access for over a month and had to use my phone’s data as a hotspot, I wasn’t able to do much work on the blog, email, Instagram, or any other social media.  So I decided to finally work on something that had been on my to-do list for — as embarrassing as it is to say — over a year

I’ve been revamping my Naughty Or Nice Cookbook!

NEW layout and design.
NEW recipe photos.
IMPROVED recipes!

I originally self-published the Naughty or Nice Cookbook back in 2015 (when I was in college).  With every year that has gone by, I dislike the original design more and more.  I’ve worked hard (read:  an entire month without internet as a distraction) to design the book so that I’m in love with it now, but also something both YOU and I will like for years to come.

Another part of the re-publishing process is re-testing ALL of the cookbook recipes.

This Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake is made from two of the recipes in the book:  Strawberry Cake + Chocolate Frosting.

I originally made both the cake and frosting separately thinking, “Oh cool, the recipes are still dang delicious!”

BUT THEN.  I realized I could make an entirely NEW creation by putting the two together!  I thought about just frosting the cake as usual, but then I thought, let’s make it interesting.

I sliced both cake layers into thinner layers — I sliced one into 3 slices and the other I managed to slice into 4.  You can do 3 slices each, or 4 each, depending on your knife-skill level.  I would probably slice my fingers off if I tried to slice the cakes any more  ?

This Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake is THE dessert to make when you gotta impress!

It’s perfect for get-togethers, celebrations, surprise parties, birthdays, and holidays alike.

Each Strawberry Cake layer is moist, fluffy, and infused with fresh, juicy strawberries.

Each layer of Chocolate Frosting is rich, thick, and seriously sweet and satisfying.

This Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake is incredibly aromatic.  It radiates a scent of fruity strawberry and heart-warming chocolate.

You can’t walk by without doing a double take.  It’s beautiful to look at and impossible to resist a slice!  My boyfriend enjoyed a slice every night, three nights in a row.  He said, “It sounds cliché, but this really doesn’t taste healthy at all.”  And as someone who eats “regular” sugary desserts, that’s saying something!

When I told him it’s sugar-free and gluten-free he shook his head and said, “No way.”

Yes way.

This Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake is naturally colored and loaded with flavor, yet free of added sugar, butter, white flour, and artificial flavorings!  Oh yes  ?
