Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cake

Remember when I told you that it was strawberry season?  Well here is another of those great strawberry recipes for you.  This is a simple light cake that blends the flavors of strawberries and chocolate.  They make a perfect combination.
A nice single layer of cake with a light dusting of powdered sugar.
We won't use all those strawberries but don't they look good.
Start with 3 Tablespoons softened butter.
3 Tablespoons Greek yogurt
1 cup sugar
1 egg.  Mix well.
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Spray a spring form pan well.
Pour the batter in the pan.  Sprinkle the chocolate chips on the top.  Some will sink to the bottom.
Place sliced strawberries around the top.  Place in a preheated 350 oven.  Bake for 1 hour.  In the last 5-10 minutes if you want to you can sprinkle some more chocolate chips on top if they have sunk to the bottom.
Let sit in the pan to cool for about 30 minutes before removing the sides of the pan.
When cool lightly sprinkle the top with powdered sugar.
It is a light and refreshing dessert for the summer. Store in the fridge.
You could put a dollop of whipped cream on top if you like.
