Rich Chocolate Cake with Strawberries and Cream

Looking for something to bake for Mothers Day? I'm baking this Rich Chocolate Cake with Strawberries and Cream - it's really quick and easy to make and it tastes deeeeelicious. My Mam LOVES Strawberries so I had to go with them, but, if you'd prefer, you can use any other berry instead. The cakes also really yummmmyy served with ice-cream and a gooey chocolate fudge sauce (I'll share the recipe for that at the end) 
Here goes....

225g Dark Chocolate
225g Butter
225g Caster Sugar
225g Plain Flour
3 eggs

Fresh Cream (whipped)
Strawberries (sliced)

*Preheat the oven to 160C/ 325F/ Gas Mark 3*

1) Melt the butter, chocolate and sugar together in a bowl over a pot of simmering water
2) When melted, add in the whisked eggs and mix
3) Add the sieved flour to the mixture and stir again
4) Line a small baking tin with greaseproof paper and pour the mixture into it
5) Bake in the oven for aprox 40 mins

Chocolate Fudge Sauce
Combine 100g Dark Chocolate, 100g Butter
and 2 tbsps of  Milk together in a bowl over
 a pot of simmering water & drizzle over the chocolate cake - YUMMMMYY
