  • In a mixing bowl add buttermilk and sugar and mix well.
  • To the buttermilk, sugar mixture add oil and just mix.
  • Stir in the flour mixture in 3 to 4 batches along with essence .
  • Finally stir in ¼ cup chopped strawberries with spatula, do not over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan , place the cake pan in the kadai and  bake it for 50mins  /until risen, / insert a skewer in center and should come clean .
  • Leave to cool in the tin for few minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
  • Cool completely before frosting.

For making ganache:  pour the fresh cream and butter into a thick sauce pan/steel pan and keep it in low flame until the butter melts and the cream just starts boiling keep stirring it, now add the chopped milk chocolate along with essence and switch of the flame.  Stir continuously till it becomes a smooth paste/pouring consistency . pour it on the cake and decorate with chocochips or as per your design.
