1 9-inch round cake
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
½ cup dark cocoa powder
2 teaspoon baking powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup nonfat Greek yogurt, plain
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup OOO Blood Orange Olive Oil
¾ cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
8 large strawberries, halved with the tops removed
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Apply non-stick spray to a 9-inch spring form pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl, mix the sugar, yogurt, eggs, vanilla, and olive oil together until combined.
In batches, mix the flour mixture into the yogurt and stir until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, then pour the cake batter into the prepared pan.
Arrange the strawberry halves over the top of the cake.
Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cool on the pan for 15 minutes then gently run a knife along the side of the cake. Carefully remove the cake from the pan and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Serve alone, dusted with powdered sugar, or add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
