Blueberry chocolate cake is one of those indulgent desserts which you can make on special occasions, which combine the tangy blueberries with some delicious chocolate and whipped cream!
Last month when I was thinking of what cake to make for Ojas’s birthday, I was totally confused. He had made it very clear that he wants a car cake and wants a car cake for both days – the school cake cutting and the party at home. Now, I wanted both the cakes to be different – both in flavors and looks. It had to be about cars and yummy at the same time. So for school, I decided to make a double chocolate cake, which is always a hit and for the home party, it was this blueberry chocolate cake! Read on to find out why 🙂
Anyway, my son is a die-hard chocolate fan. And for the home party cake, I had a brainwave, when Noodlehead told me about this shop where we get Purple Color Blueberry Flavored Chocolate!!!!
The chocolate looked so exotic and yummy enough to be a must buy. While I was buying it, I had no idea what to do with it. It is only later, I thought of making a cake with it. And as it was blueberry flavored, it made complete sense to club the chocolate with some blueberries as filling. Hence, in my mind was born the blueberry chocolate cake. But the only problem was now, about the car shape, so I decided that I will do a two tier cake and place an edible sugar crafted car on top of it. And the result was as seen in the picture here!
I think the blueberry and the chocolate combination worked really well with the tanginess of blueberries being perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the whipped cream and the yummy blueberry chocolate! Definitely a hit in the party! The cake was moist and soft and oh-so-delicious!
Have you tried the blueberry strudel muffins yet?
