BLACKBERRY CHOCOLATE CAKE


INGREDIENTS:
 

FOR CAKE: 
2 cups Sugar,
1 cup Hot coffee,
2 cups Flour,
1/3 cups Black Cocoa Powder,

2/3 cup Dutch-processed Cocoa Powder,
1 tsp Salt,

1 tsp Baking Powder:
1 tsp Baking Soda,

2  Beaten Eggs,
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil,
1 cup Whole Milk,


FOR BLACKBERRY BUTTER CREAM:
1/2 cup Blackberry Puree (from about 3/4 cup Ollie Berries),
2 tbsp Black Cocoa (sifted) ,
300 gm Sugar,
150 gm Water,
150 gm Egg whites,
Pinch of cream of tartar (optional),
50 gm Sugar,
500 gm Butter,
Food coloring (if desired): as required,
Oreo cookies (chopped into sixths): as required,

FOR DARK CHOCOLATE GAN-ACHE:

85 gm Dark chocolate (chopped)
70 gm Heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp Butter


PREPARATION:

Take a bowl. Shift the Black Cocoa powder, mix it into the Blackberry Puree and set aside. Take a small saucepan and combine Water and Sugar in it. Bring the Sugar Mixture to a boil over medium high heat, and without stirring the syrup, allow it to heat up to 240F. Combine Egg Whites and Cream of Tartar in the working bowl of the mixer and whisk on medium low until the Egg Whites begin to foam. Once the Sugar Syrup reaches 240F, pour it into the Beaten Egg Whites in a small stream, whisking continuously. Keep whisking on medium high until the ingredients in the mixing bowl are not warm anymore. Slowly and gradually add Butter to the Egg Whites and Sugar Mixture, about ½ tbsp at a time. Once all the butter has been added, stir in the cocoa and blackberry mixture. Also add the Food Color at this stage (if using). Beat the frosting for another couple of minutes and then use it immediately to layer the Baked Cake parts. 
Make dark Chocolate Gan-ache:
Place the Chopped Chocolate in a medium sized mixing bowl and set aside. Heat the Butter and Cream in a small saucepan until it is almost simmering, and then pour it over the Chopped Chocolate. Let it stand for a minute and then whisk the Chocolate and Cream until smooth. Cool the Gan-ache a bit and then pour it onto the frosted cake. BLACKBERRY CHOCOLATE CAKE is ready to serve.
