Decadent Chocolate-and-Cream Layer Cake

By Ann Taylor Pittman, Cooking Light

Save room for dessert—this is one you don’t want to miss. It certainly has its virtues: It’s made with whole-grain flour, gets topped with fresh fruit, and contains 6g of fiber per serving. But what makes this cake so spectacular, truly, is how good it tastes.

Total Time

1 Hour 40 Mins

Yield

Serves 16 (serving size: 1 slice)


Ingredients

Cake

  • Cooking spray
  • 7.33 ounces whole-wheat pastry flour (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup fat-free buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Dash of table salt

Yogurt Cream

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Fruit topping

  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 (6-oz.) container fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup small strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate arils (optional)


How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

Prepare cake: Coat 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray; line bottoms of pans with parchment paper. Coat paper with cooking spray; set aside.

Step 3

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Place flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a bowl; whisk to combine.

Step 4

Place granulated sugar, oil, and eggs in a large bowl; beat with a handheld mixer on medium speed until well blended, about 2 minutes. Beat in buttermilk, 1/3 cup warm water, and vanilla. Add flour mixture; beat on low speed just until combined. Increase speed to medium, and beat 1 minute.

Step 5

Divide batter evenly between prepared pans. Bake at 350°F until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 23 to 25 minutes. Cool cake layers in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto rack; remove parchment paper. Let cake layers cool completely.

Step 6

Prepare glaze: Combine powdered sugar, cocoa, chocolate chips, milk, butter, and salt in a small saucepan. Cook over low, stirring constantly, until butter and chocolate melt, about 3 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Step 7

Prepare yogurt cream: Place cream and powdered sugar in a large bowl; beat with a handheld mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Add yogurt and vanilla; beat on high speed until combined.

Step 8

Place 1 cake layer on a cake stand or plate; top evenly with yogurt cream, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with second cake layer. Carefully pour chocolate glaze over top of cake, spreading to edges. Arrange berries and, if using, arils on top.
