As a mother to seven sons, I love making truly unique cake recipes for each birthday. Everyone just loved this cake. I recommend this to anyone looking to have a nice treat on a special day. Not only does this serve as a birthday cake, but also a decadent tea time sweet.

Tea pairing for this cake: either Earl Grey or strongly brewed Moroccan Mint.

How to Make Double Dark Chocolatey Chip Blackberry Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat sugars, eggs, vanilla, oil, and shortening. Be sure to add in parts until all blended.
  3. Add cocoa, flour, salt, coffee, and baking powder, also in parts. Blend for one minute.
  4. Add milk, as needed to make a nice cake batter consistency.
  5. Blend 2 heaping tablespoons of jam into batter.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
  7. Pour into a greased baking pan.
  8. Drop spoonfuls of jam until only two tablespoons of jam are left in the jar. Marble the jam into the batter.
  9. Cook cake until a toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Allow to cool completely.
  11. In a clean mixing bowl, add all frosting ingredients. I recommend adding confectioners' sugar in parts for desired sweetness. Beat until a smooth consistency. Add milk as needed.
  12. Apply to a cooled cake.
  13. Decorate with fresh berries.
  14. In a small bowl, mix cocoa powder and confectioners' sugar.
  15. Pour through a sieve to dust cake.
