2 cups sugar
8 oz unsalted butter softened
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs

Strawberry Mousse Filling
1 Cup Heavy Cream
2 cups sliced cleaned strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope gelatin

Chocolate Mascarpone Frosting
4 ounces semi sweet chocolate chopped
16 ounces Mascarpone
4 cups 500 g confectioner’s sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips to garnish top of cake

Chocolate Cake
Prepare 4 cake pans using parchment circles in the bottom of each pan and lightly coating the sides and paper with butter
Preheat oven to 350
Blend flour, salt, baking soda, cocoa and sugar together, set aside
Make sure all of your wet ingredients are at room temperature.
In the bowl of your mixer whip softened butter and yogurt together .
Add the eggs one at a time fully incorporating before adding another, and remember to scrape down your bowl in between each addition.
Add vanilla and mix until blended
Add the dry ingredients and mix just enough to blend them into the wet ingredients.
Divide between 4 cake pans,spreading batter evenly using an offset spatula
Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes then remove from pan to continue cooling.
Sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cup water in a small bowl and let stand 5 minutes.

Strawberry Mousse
In a food processor, puree 2 cups sliced strawberries and 1/2 cup granulated sugar until smooth.
Transfer strawberry mixture to a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat, and add gelatin to strawberry mixture, stirring constantly until gelatin dissolves.
Cover and chill until slightly thickened about 30 minutes, stir the mixture every 10 minutes
Whip cream at low speed until foamy; gradually increase speed to medium-high, and beat until soft peaks form.
Fold whipped cream into strawberry mixture until well blended. Cover and chill 30 minutes or just until mixture has thickened enough to be used as filling
Spread about 1 cup Strawberry Mousse between each cake layer, cover and chill 3 hours or until mousse is set.

Chocolate Mascarpone Frosting
In a double boiler melt chocolate, set aside.
Add Mascarpone to a large bowl and beat with confectioner’s sugar in three additions until smooth.
Add vanilla and gradually add the melted chocolate.
Whip frosting until light and fluffy and frost cake immediately, before chocolate can set.
Sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top of cake.
Refrigerate cake until serving, but allow it to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

If you’re like most of the world (me included) you over indulge during the holidays. For Americans, it’s even worse because we start with Thanksgiving at the end of November and don’t stop until the dust has settled in January.

This January I decided to lose the weight and I've to keep it off by eating better. Read my post and join me on my 4-week weight loss journey with Nutrisystem and let's lose weight together. We can compare pictures at the end of the four weeks.
