Chocolate blueberry cake
Torta mirtilli e cioccolato
Cities in Northern Italy have a proud tradition for classic cafés and pasticcerie, where you can find the most wonderful sweet bakery. This chocolate blueberry cake is inspired by a visit to Bergamo, and all the treats I didn’t get to taste during a too brief stay.
By the Great Bake Off standards this chocolate blueberry cake is fairly rustic looking, but it is filled with sweet fruity goodness. And it could easily be elaborated on with tops and tiers and intricate designs. Running short on time I took the easy way out with a blueberry coloured icing. And please note that even the plain version takes time to prepare and clean up afterwards.
