Chocolate-Speckled Strawberry Cake




Chocolate-Speckled Strawberry Cake 

115g butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mashed strawberries
1 1/2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 175 C. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add the eggs, and beat for 1 minute. Stir in the vanilla and salt.
In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and the baking soda until the baking soda has dissolved. Add the sour cream mixture and the flour to the egg mixture. Beat well, then stir in the mashed strawberries.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly touched.

Optional
I added about 100g of chopped unsweetened dark chocolate into the mixture.
