Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make cake:.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F Line 9x9x2 baking pan with foil. Butter foil; dust with flour. Stir chocolate and butter in medium saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth. Add jam and whisk until melted. Cool slightly.
  3. Using electric mixer, beat sugar and eggs in large bowl until mixture thickens, about 6 minutes. Sift flour and baking powder over egg mixture and fold together. Gradually fold in chocolate mixture.
  4. Pour batter into pan. Bake until top of cake is slightly crusty, begins to crack and tester inserted into center comes out with moist crumbs attached, about 45 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Gently press down any raised edges of cake to make even. Cool in pan. Invert cake onto platter. Peel off foil. Trim 1/2 inch off each edge of cake.
  5. Make glaze:.
  6. Stir cream and jam in small saucepan over medium heat until jam melts; bring to boil.
  7. Remove from heat. Add chocolate and stir until melted. Let stand until cool but still spreadable, about 15 minutes.
  8. Spread glaze over top of cake. Immediately arrange berries atop glaze. Chill until glaze sets, about 10 minutes. This can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and keep chilled.
  9. Cut into 12 pieces and serve.
