Sometimes just the name of a recipe can get the mouth watering when you say it out loud, and this is one of those recipes. Chocolate. Cake. With. Cream. Cheese. (you had us there) And... (there's an "and"?). What's more, you make it all from scratch. Don't worry, the jam is an easier version that can even be made the day before. As for the cake, it's rich with chocolate pieces and cocoa powder, for double the flavor, plus maple syrup, for depth.
- For the jam, in a saucepan, heat strawberries, blueberries and sugar and bring to a boil.
- Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally until thick sauce is formed. Grind with hand blender and set aside to cool.
- Tip: Jam can be prepared the day before. Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F. Grease two small cake pans and line with parchment paper.
