Berry Chocolate Cake
Servings 14 servings
- 2 ½ c. all-purpose flour
- ½ c. Equal Exchange Organic Baking Cocoa
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ¾ tsp. salt
- ½ c. whole milk
- ½ c. sour cream
- 2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 ½ c. sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 2 c. blueberries and sliced strawberries or any mix of berries you prefer
- 3 oz. Equal Exchange Organic Panama Extra Dark Chocolate
- ½ c. heavy cream
- 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 14-cup Bundt pan. Whisk together flour, baking cocoa, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Combine milk and sour cream in a separate bowl.
Cream butter and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. Reduce mixer speed to low, then alternate between adding the flour mixture and milk mixture.
Spoon batter into a pan. Bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 55-60 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack, then invert cake.
To make the glaze, place chopped chocolate in a bowl. In a small saucepan, heat the cream to a simmer. Pour over the chocolate and let stand for 2 minutes. Add butter and mix until smooth. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Pour glaze over cooled cake.
Top the cake with a handful of berries and fill the center with the rest. Serve sliced with berries on the side.
