Ingredients

Scale

For the cake

  • 1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 3 ounces unsalted butter, diced
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

For the frosting

  • 12 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 ounce unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Rum
  • 1 tablespoon blueberry syrup
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar

For Rum syrup

  • 2 teaspoons Rum
  • 1 tablespoon blueberry syrup

For garnishing

  • fresh blueberries
  • cocoa powder
  • a pinch of powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix milk, butter, chocolate chips and sugar in a large bowl. Microwave for 0.5-1 minute until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved well.
  3. Add egg, cake flour, baking soda, and cocoa powder to the chocolate mixture. Stir vigorously until smooth.
  4. Prepare your cake pans. Divide cake mixture evenly into 3 6″x6″x2″ prepared square cake pans.
  5. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Let the cake cool.
  6. While the cake is in the oven, make the frosting. Mix softened butter, cream cheese, blueberry syrup and Rum until smooth. Add powdered sugar and stir until creamy.
  7. To prepare Rum syrup, simply mix Rum and blueberry syrup in a small bowl.
  8. Place one layer of cake on a desired serving plate. Use a bread knife to cut the extra part if your cake is not flat.
  9. Apply Rum syrup on the cake by brushing it with a pastry brush.
  10. Spread a thick layer of frosting on the cake evenly.
  11. Gently place the second layer of cake on top and repeat step 9 and step 10.
  12. Do the same with the third layer of cake. If you want your cake to look a little fancy, before frosting the top layer, scoop the rest of the frosting into a Ziploc bag; press all air out, seal and cut a small hole at the corner end. Now it’s time to call for your creativity. Do whatever you want with the last step of frosting. (This is optional.)
  13. Sprinkle the frosted cake with cocoa powder; garnish with fresh blueberries; sprinkle a dash powdered sugar onto the blueberries. Serve!
