Hello <>,

Can you believe it's already Christmas?

We're just preparing a big Christmas party together with friends and colleagues. It's so exciting!
Everyone has to bring something and we got to bring dessert. This was a bit dificult for me, because we should bring something typical from our country that would also be typical for Christmas.
Germany has many great and typical Chrismas dishes, but none that I'm capable of baking. After searching for a while and found this awesome Strawberry Cake Recipe.

Chocolate Strawberry Port Cake

- 1/3 cup butter or margarine
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate pieces
- 1/2 cup port wine
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 pint basket fresh strawberries, stemmed and sliced
- 1 cup whipping cream, shipped and sweetened

Melt butter and 1/2 cup of the chocolate in 1/3 cup of the port. Stir and cool.
Beat egg yolks with 6 tablespoons of the sugar until thick and pale in blender. Add slowly chocolate mixture while blending. Mix in flour and remaining chocolate.
Beat egg whites with remaining sugar just until stiff in another bowl; gradually fold into chocolate batter to blend.
Pour into greased and floured 9-inch round layer cake pan. Bake in 325-degree oven 25 to 30 minutes until pick inserted into center comes out clean.
Cool in pan 5 minutes; loosen and invert onto plate. With back of spoon press shallow indentation into center of cake. Toss strawberries with remaining port; spoon into center of cake. Pipe or spoon whipped cream around edge.

Enjoy and don't feel guilty about eating the Strawberry Chocolate Cake, because they say

"Most people don't gain weight between Christmas and New Year, they put on weight between New Year and Christmas!"
