Chocolate cake with blackberries
Mmm, so decadent, so tasty. Rich and extra chocolatey. It reminds us of those super delicious flourless chocolate cakes, but this one comes with a super delish ingredient: blackberries. They say blackberries and white chocolate are best friends and they might be, but milk and/or dark chocolate don’t fall far behind. This wonderful chocolate cake is the perfect easy cake for birthdays, but also for picnics or a quick weekend dessert. It only takes about 15 minutes to prepare everything, then off to the oven for about 40 minutes. Leave it to cool, then serve at room temperature with fresh blackberries and optionally sour creme or creme fraiche / vanilla ice cream. Easy, decadent and oh boy, so delicious.

METHOD

  • Preparation

    Preheat the oven to 175 °C / 350 °F. Brush a bit of the butter on the bottom and sides of a 16 cm / 7-inch cake pan. Sprinkle with one tablespoon of flour.

  • Melt the chocolate and butter

    Place chocolate, whipping cream and butter in a bowl. Place a saucepan with water on medium heat. Place the bowl with chocolate, cream and butter on top of the saucepan. Make sure the water doesn't touch the bowl. Melt the chocolate and butter, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature.

  • Chocolate cake batter

    Separate the egg yolks from egg whites. Beat the egg whites in a bowl until nice and glossy. In a separate bowl whisk the egg yolks with sugar until the mixture triples in volume. Add the chocolate mixture to the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly until completely incorporated.

  • Chocolate cake batter

    Sift the cocoa powder, flour and ground almonds into a bowl and stir to combine. Alternate dry ingredients (cacao powder, flour, ground almonds) and egg whites until completely incorporated in the chocolate mixture. The better should be glossy and shiny.

  • Bake and serve

    Pour the chocolate cake into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Arrange one handful of fresh blackberries over the top of the batter, then place in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes at 175 °C / 350 °F. When the cake is baked, remove from the oven and let it cool for about 30 minutes before removing from the pan. Evenly arrange the rest of the blackberries on top of the cool chocolate cake. Slice and serve. Optionally you can serve this cake with sour cream or fraîche. Enjoy.

    Tip
    You can use frozen blackberries for the cake batter.
