Both layers taste great together!

Decoration of chocolate blueberry cake

To make decoration for this cake, firstly, I added blueberries – as one of main ingredients for this cake. Secondly, I coarsely grated some chocolate and layered it around the blueberries. And finally, to make it more beautiful, I garnished the cake with melissa leaves (lemon balm) and fresh violet flowers from my kitchen garden.

Chocolate sponge or chocolate cake layer

This chocolate sponge is my favorite! It is perfect for any chocolate lover. Actually, you can use this recipe to make chocolate cake with any creamy topping. The key to get the best chocolate sponge, is to use high cocoa percentage, high quality dark chocolate. This sponge is quite dense, indulgent and gets ready in the oven pretty fast. So keep an eye on it, if you don’t want to burn your favorite chocolate!

Mascarpone blueberry cream

Mascarpone cream becomes lighter, when you add yogurt. Moreover, combined with sweet blueberries, it is a perfect pair to the chocolate sponge! I smashed blueberries and sieved them into the cake for the smooth texture. By the way, you can use any berries at your choice, such as strawberries, blackberries or cherries. Moreover, you can leave berries out and make black & white cake, maybe add some vanilla flavor. However, to my mind, berries add some freshness to thick mascarpone cream. I added just a little of icing sugar to the cream, as it already had natural sweetness of blueberries, so add sugar to your taste!

This chocolate blueberry cake with mascarpone will look great on your table at any celebration or gathering. Moreover, your guests will be surprised by it pleasant taste too!

    You have combined two of my most favourite things here – I adore chocolate and love blueberries! The only problem is I don’t think I’d be able to stop at just one slice!
