  • 2 tablespoons chocolate powder
  • 6 eggs
  • 100 grams (3/4 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 125 grams (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rum
  • 2 tablespoons soft fruit jam
  • 200 ml (1/2 pint (236 ml)) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • Soft fruit for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF). Grease a round cake pan (25 x 6 centimeters (9 3/4 x 2 1/3 inches)) with margarine and sprinkle with flour.
  2. In an electric mixer, beat on medium speed the egg and the sugar until obtain a creamy mixture. Then, add the chocolate powder together with the soft fruit jam and the rum and beat for 2 to 3 minutes to incorporate. Reduce the speed, add the flour and beat until a homogeneous mixture.
  3. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes (the time depends on the oven).
  4. Remove the cake from oven, unmold and let cool to room temperature.
  5. Whip the cream together with the powdered sugar and the vanilla in a electric mixer until stiff peaks form (don’t overbeat the cream). With a spatula, cover the cake with the whipped cream, garnish with soft fruit and serve. Store in the fridge.
