Ingredients

Chocolate Cake
100 Gms (approx 3.5 oz) Dark Chocolate (70% Cocoa) (Chopped)
100 Gms (approx 3.5 oz) Milk Chocolate (Chopped)
8 Tbsp (113.4 Gms) Unsalted Butter (Cut into Quarters)
3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
3 Large Eggs
1 1/4 Cups (8 3/4 oz.) Sugar
2 Tsp Vanilla Essence
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Cup (5 oz.) All Purpose Flour

Raspberry Jam Filling
5 c. fresh or frozen red raspberries
4 c. white sugar
1 lemon, juiced
1 box pectin

White Chocolate Frosting
1 1/2 sticks butter, room temperature
12 oz cream cheese, room temperature
3 c. confectioner sugar
11 oz white chocolate, melted

Directions

Chocolate Cake

Pre-heat the oven to 350F and line a 8x8 inch round cake pan with parchment paper that hangs over the edges for easy removal. Grease lightly and set aside.

Melt the chocolate and butter in the top of a double boiler until smooth. Add the cocoa powder and whisk till combined. Keep aside to cool

Mix together the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl for 15 seconds.

Pour in the warm melted chocolate mixture and mix.

Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon until just combined.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread with a spatula to make an even layer. Place in the middle tray of your oven and bake until slightly risen and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a small amount of sticky crumbs clinging to it, 35-40 minutes.

Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool to room temperature, about 2 hours.

Pull the overhanging foil and remove the cake from the pan.

Let cake cool entirely before cutting horizontally with a serrated knife to form two layers.

Raspberry Jam Filling

In a large saucepan add sugar, berries, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and cook until sugar and berries have dissolved, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching.

Add pectin. Boil for 15 minutes and remove from heat.

You may add to hot sterilized jars and seal at this point, or cool slightly and transfer to containers to freeze or store in the refrigerator.

White Chocolate Frosting

Mix butter and cream cheese together until creamy. Slowly add confectioner sugar, one cup at a time.

Add the melted chocolate and stir until incorporated. Chill slightly and then frost the entire cake.

Assembly

Place one cake layer onto your serving plate.

Spread half the raspberry jam over the cake.

Use a spoon or a piping bag to add spoonfuls of white chocolate frosting onto the jam a few areas.

Top with second cake layer.

Decorate with more jam and frosting.
