Ly’s Cake!

A while back, I posted a carrot cake with rye flour for a friend’s birthday, which was delicious! But someone else got a bit jealous and also demanded a cake… well… What could I do?? I didn’t really know which cake to make, so I had the initial idea of baking a black forest cake. Well, that didn’t work for the lack of cherries in syrup. So I decided to make Ly’s cake, a black forest cake with a twist of almonds, mulberry and strawberry sauce… you should try to make it!!

Recipe for Ly’s Cake:


  • 400g of unsalted butter;
  • 400g of caster sugar;
  • 280g of plain wholemeal flour;
  • 120g of cocoa powder;
  • 7 eggs;
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder.


  • 350g of mulberries;
  • 150g of strawberries;
  • 1/4 mug of sugar;
  • 1/2 orange, squeezed;
  • 1 mug of water;
  • 3 tablespoons of corn flour.


  • 200g of double cream;
  • 200g of 70% dark chocolate

Filling (together with the sauce):

  • 400g of double cream, whipped.

Instructions will follow soon!
