  • Summary

    Our version of the German specialty is wonderfully left to the elements, rather than shrouded in whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Tow layers of chocolate sponge cake (or genoise) -- brushed with a creme de cassis syrup -- sandwich chocolate-ganache glaze, whipped cream, and fresh blackberries (a no-pitting-required swap for cherries). The toppings? More ganache glaze and a pile of berries.

    Ingredients

    • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for pans
    • 2/3 cup sifted cake flour, plus more for pans
    • 1/3 cup sifted Dutch-process cocoa powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 4 large eggs, plus 3 large yolks, room temperature
    • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/3 cup creme de cassis
    • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
    • 3/4 cup heavy cream
    • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
    • 1/3 cup red- or black-currant jelly, or blackberry jelly
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • 4 cups fresh blackberries (16 ounces)
    • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
