Chocolate Berries Cake

It's not that we actually need a Valentine's day to honour love in a special way, but this is a date that I really like to celebrate, even if more intimately, rather than going out. Can you think of something more romantic than to spend the day pampering your beloved better half? Well, yes, if you're being pampered as well!;) That being said, you really can't go wrong with a cenario that involves a rich, delicious and tempting chocolate treat on the 14th and if on top, it comes along with simplicity and quickness it will certainly be the right bet for a day where you won't be desiring to waste any time!


  • 2 tea cups flour
  • 2 tea cups sugar
  • 1 soup spoon baking powder
  • 7 eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 tea cup sunflower oil
  • 1 tea cup of chocolate in powder
  • 1 tea cup of milk
  • 1 tea cup of boiling water
  • 2 packest cream
  • sprinkles

Pre-heat the oven 190ºC/ 4 gas. In a bowl beat up the eggs, the sugar and the sunflower oil for about 3 minutes with the mixer and pour over the flour with the baking powder. Blend well with a big spoon, add the milk and at last pour the boiling water cup over all. Use the  mixer again for about 3 minutes. Put the dough in a cake mould lightly greased with butter. Put it in the oven for about 25 minutes.After it has cooled down, separate the cake in two pieces and add raspberry jam and some pureed raspberries. Beat the two packets of cream firmly with 4 spoons of sugar and cover the cake.
