This is one of the most different and most delicious cakes I have ever done. You gotta make it, its that good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3 eggs (Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup of Hershey cocoa unsweetened
1 cup milk
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp baking powder
Use your hand mixer to beat together in a bowl, the egg yolks, sugar and the butter until its creamy. Add milk and beat again. Then little by little add the flour and mix slowly so it won't splatter. Add the Hershey cocoa powder and the baking powder then mix again, mix well.
Wash and dry the hand mixer and in a separate bowl mix the egg whites until it becomes hard and forms a peak. Add to the cake mixture and fold it in with your spatula, don't beat it with the hand mixer. Lightly mix it together or fold it in with your spatula to keep the cake fluffy. Bake in the oven on 350*F for 35 - 40 minutes.
Don't bang around the oven otherwise the cake will sink!
1 box strawberries
1 bag Sonho de Valsa chocolate(or chocolate of your choice, just make sure you have lots of it)
1 quart of Heavy whipping cream
When the cake comes out the oven, let it cool of completely. Then slice the cake in half and lift the top half off so you can put a filling in your cake ( If you want to see how to do this, watch my Strawberry Coconut Tres Leches cake video and you'll see how its done).
In a bowl mix with your hand mixer the heavy whipping cream with about 1 cup of sugar. Mix for at least 5 minutes on high speed or until the cream turns into whip cream, thick and creamy. Taste and see if it need more sugar, if it does then add more sugar to taste and mix again.
Wash and slice all the strawberries, crush all the Sonho de Valsa chocolate or the chocolate of your choice. Sonho de Valsa is a Brazilian chocolate and can be found in a Brazilian store. Its a mild chocolate and not so sweet. But still has the right amount of sweetness to it. I suggest you choose a chocolate that is not so sweet, unless you like a really sweet cake.
Make a thick layer of whip cream as the filling of your cake, then on top of that, make a thick layer of sliced strawberries then you can either make a thick layer of the crushed chocolate over that or you can make a thin layer of whip cream again, then a thick layer of the crushed chocolate so it can stick to the whip cream better.
Cover your cake with the top cover carefully.
Cover your surprise
The whip cream you have left over, use this to cover your cake. Spread it all over the sides and top of your cake to cover your cake entirely. Then decorate our cake with the left over crushed chocolate some shredded coconut if you have it and decorate as in the picture above with some sliced strawberries. (Watch video # 5 of the Strawberry Coconut Tres Leches cake to learn how to decorate the cake with a tip and pastry bag).
