Chocolate Cake with Cranberries and Raspberries Fillings



 I came across this lovely chocolate cake recipe of Chef Johnny Chan, a well known Hong Kong based pastry chef. He is known for his passion in pastry and his creative ideas , techniques and the use of ingredients. For my bake this time, I had used deliciously moist dried cranberries instead of black sweet cherries and raspberry jam to ehnaced the taste of the chocolate. It is a very simple recipe and yet an ideal to serve this to your guests on a special occasion. This cake can be served cool and even warm over a scoop of lovely and delicious vanilla ice-cream. I am sure you will give this wonderful recipe a try this weekend . . . . yours Sunny Yaw
