One bowl chocolate chip cake with crushed strawberry butter cream

 After making time consuming entremets, I'm back to lazy mode again, haha.

 Well, I still bake everyday but easy is what I'm looking for. As I said, easy doesn't mean bad, not tasty or not interesting, and doesn't mean that you can play with flavour. Today I woke up and thought about chocolate cake, you know that I'm crazy about it and I didn't have it enough lately. But with lazy mode, I didn't want to spend 2 day for it, something quick is the best choice. 
One bowl chocolate for me, it has to use only one bowl, and yes you can see that you put all the ingredients into a bowl and stir that's all, because lazy mode means I don't want to wash a lot of dish too, haha.
Because I have strawberries in the fridge, so I thought it would be great to mix it with chocolate (they belong to each other anyway, ^^). So, I made easy butter cream (no, don't talk to me about any kinds meringue here, only icing, butter and whipping cream is enough). You just put everything into a bowl and whisk until smooth, Done! 
Because the butter cream contains fresh fruit, it's better to finish it in 1-2 days, anyway mine is almost gone by now, so I don't have to worry about it, haha.
