Let's get started on making the dessert! 


  • 3 eggs 
  • 150 ml of milk 
  • 2 tablespoons of oil 
  • 8 tablespoons of flour 
  • 100 grams of baking powder 
  • 8 tablespoons of sugar 
  • 3 tablespoons of cacao 
  • 3 tablespoons of jam (strawberry, peach, plums...) 

  • 100 grams of dark chocolate 
  • 4 tablespoons of water 
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar 


  • Crack eggs into a bowl and mix them for a minute. You can use an electric mixer or mix it with a fork. Add sugar and mix it together until you get a fluffy mixture. 
  • Then add milk and oil. Stire it together so that all the ingredients combine. 
  • You can either add flour, baking powder, and cacao in a separate bowl, mix then together and add to the egg mixture which I would recommend you to do. But you can also add them directly into the mixture. 
  • Mix it for a few minutes until the mixture doesn't have any clumps. 
  • Then you can go ahead and add jam. Mix it together so that it doesn't clump in just one part of the mixture. 
  • Preheat the oven to 165 °C and bake it for around 35 minutes
  • Line a baking dish with some parchment paper or grease it and add to it the chocolate cake mixture. 
  • Don't open the oven before 15 minutes of baking as it can cause the cake to lose its shape. After 20 minutes you can check if the cake is almost done by poking it with a knife or a toothpick. If there isn't anything left when you pull it out then the cake is done. 

  • While you leave your cake to cool a little bit you can prepare the chocolate glaze. Put 4 tablespoons of warm water in a pan with chocolate and sugar. Melt it on the stove on low heat. Don't let it boil.  
  • Once most of the chocolate is melted take it away from the stove and stir it until all the chocolate is melted. 
  • Carefully cover the warm cake with the chocolate glaze and leave it to cool on room temperature. 
  • Once you can see that the glaze cooled down you can put it in the fridge.

This Mary Berry inspired chocolate cake is very soft and gooey so I like to cut them in bite-sized pieces and grab a one or two when I want something sweet. But you can also cut them into langer squares and serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. It is best to keep them in a fridge if you manage to not eat them all in a one go. 

This recipe is my newest obsessions and I really hope that you will try this chocolate cake recipe out. It is the perfect recipe for those who are just starting to dive into the baking world.
