Black Forest-style chocolate sponge with blackberries


This pretty desserts riffs on the classic Black Forest cake, but makes more elegant individual servings. A simple chocolate sponge is cut into discs and then layered with cream and blackberries.

For this recipe you will need a 25x35cm/10x14in baking tray and a 9cm/3½in plain biscuit cutter (or similar).
