Blackberry Jam Cake

Blog post by Margaret.

So when doesn’t chocolate cake taste like chocolate?

When you mix in Blackberry Jam!

This is one combination I would not have come up with, but Nick puts the two flavors together in a delightful little bundt cake and it was quite tasty.  The taste of chocolate is actually only a background taste even tho it is a chocolate cake.  The blackberry jam (1 cup) is the big flavor in this cake.

I made 1/2 of the batter with the plan to make a 6″ bundt but then decided I could use small ones for bribesgifts and ended up with 1-4″ bundt and 3 smaller ones.  Pretty with powdered sugar.  Delicious with just a little chocolate whipped cream!!

The recipe is in Malgieri’s the Modern Baker on page 233.  But I also found it on Amanda’s Blog and an adapted version with some delightful bundt shapes on my Friend Nancy’s Blog. And, yes Kayte, you cannot taste the chocolate!!  LOL

Okay, it’s not pretty because I forgot to do the breadcrumb thing, but it makes a great trifle as well! Here’s the post: http://grandmaskitchentable.typepad.com/grandmas_kitchen_table/2012/08/modern-baker-blackberry-jam-cake.html
