Blackberry Lane and Cake

There was a delicious sounding recipe in today’s Guardian Feast, quite complicated but as I was having a day on my own, why not? I went into town and bought the odd bits I didn’t have and then went blackberrying to collect fresh blackberries for the Blackberry and Star Anise Chocolate Cake, recipe from Edd Kimber.

First I made some Blackberry jam, then the cake mixture (a very unusual method), then while the cake was cooking and the jam cooling, I made the chocolate ganache. Assembly came next and – wow! It’s the best cake ever!
