Moist chocolate cake with red berries

(6 Portions)


  • 1 ½ cups dark chocolate (70% cacao), chopped
  • 200 grams butter
  • 3 eggs + 2 yolks
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups SOFRUCO red fruits (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries)
  • Zest and juice of 1 SOFRUCO orange
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar


  • In a double boiler, melt the chocolate with the butter, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  • Place the eggs and sugar in a separate bowl and use an electric mixer to beat the eggs at the highest speed until they are thick, pale, and fluffy.
  • Gradually fold the beaten eggs into the melted chocolate. Add the cornstarch and mix well. Pour the batter into a greased and floured cake pan, filling to the half-way mark.
  • Bake at 180ºC for 25–30 minutes. Remove from oven, cool thoroughly, and remove from the pan.
  • In a bowl, combine the berries with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar, and orange juice and zest. Mix well.
  • Dust the cake with the remaining powdered sugar and serve with the berries.
