What to do with an abundance of wild blackberries? Well, I love chocolate, didn't want to heat up the kitchen or pay much attention to it. So I found 2 recipes, one here, and one offline and combined them to make a completely new dessert! Chocolate cake that makes its own blackberry/chocolate syrup! Yum! The first 6 steps are for the cake batter; steps 7 & 8 are for the berry sauce.
