Blackberry and Orange Cake with Chocolate Ganache

He is not here: for He is risen ... (Matthew 28:6)

Happy Easter to all!  I hope you are having a wonderful day.

To celebrate Easter, I made a cake that I have had my eye on since the recipe was published in March - Jordan Rondel’s Blackberry and Orange Cake with Chocolate Ganache.  This is an autumn cake with a delicious combination of flavours.

Here is the lovely vanilla cake before it is enrobed in ganache:

My cake is a miniature version of the recipe - only a quarter of the size of the original. Luscious blackberries are embedded in the cake, and orange zest is mixed into the cake batter.

Once the cake is cooled, a dark chocolate ganache is poured over the cake, before the cake is decorated with more blackberries and orange zest.  To make my cake an Easter celebration, I also put small candy coated “bird’s” eggs on top of the cake.

Here is a peek inside of this luscious, fruity cake:

I loved this cake, and highly recommend that you make it if you like fruit and chocolate flavours together. The recipe is at the link above.

I like chocolate and passionfruit but not so much orange but it sounds very versatile!

Dear Gaye, what a delicious looking treat of a cake! Actually I like berries and chocolate together and I love the way you decorated your cake for Easter!
I hope you are enjoying Easter weekend!
Stay safe, my friend and Happy Easter wishes!

Orange and blackberries are such a good match for chocolate - this cake sounds like a very adult easter treat (ie I would love it but not sure about kids)
