Chocolate mascarpone cake with berries

As usual, I have so much more important things to do than making blogposts and recording videos. Therefore, I made two new blogposts and two new videos (because I love making them!). Of course.
I'm a huge procrastinator. I think I need to write more notes.

Anyway, this cake was actually a practice round for an episode of a tv show I'm going to be on. So in about a week or so I will be going to Finland for the first time in my life. Very exciting!

  41. Hej!
    Undrar bara om du inte kan göra fler videos på hur du gör några av dina tårtor i din bok? Fick den i julklapp och har testat fyra fem stycken men dom blir inte alls lika fina som dina så jag tänkte att du kanske kunde visa på film hur man får till en fin utsida med frostingen?
    Tack för mig :D

  53. Dear Linda, I just tried this chocolate cake recipe today and just to say THANK YOU!
    The cake really pairs up well with the mascapone cream (love love love!!) and berries...not too sweet but with a lovely chocolate aroma.

  54. Hej!

    Jag har kanske en dum fråga, men ska man vispa upp vispgrädden innan man blandar med mascarpone blandningen eller häller man rinnande grädde ner i ostblandningen o vispar sedan upp allt?
    Tack på förhand!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hej! Ingen fråga är dum :-)
      Du vispar inte upp grädden före. Som du säger så vispar du rinnande grädde och ostblandningen tills du får en tjock kräm. Vispa inte för mycket dock för då kan det skära sig! Bara precis lagom så att den är bredbar. Lycka till!

  56. I've tried baking this cake twice and it's always extremely dry and crumbly... I even added some oil to the second time and it didn't seem to help. Am I missing something?

    1. Try baking it for a few minutes less! Something like 20 minutes maybe :-)

  59. Wow. That's really all I can say here...I made this incredible cake for a dear friends baby shower this past weekend. Legitimately the tastiest, densest, most delicious chocolate cake I have ever tasted. NO EXAGGERATION HERE PEOPLE! People now think I am some sort of engineer of cake, which i had to give you credit for! I will be back over and over! (I did also add shmear of blackberry preserves in between layers...*swoon*)

  60. This cake looks so gorgeous!!!!
    But there's one thing,that I can't understand - is it really comfortable to eat it??? Pieces of this chocolate cake seems to be big and high enough:)))
