Chocolate Raspberry Genoise with Chocolate Ganach

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together three times and return to sifter

½ cup plus 1 tablespoon sifted cake flour   ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa Melt in a small saucepan:

1/3 cup butter Whisk together in a large heatproof bowl:

6 large eggs 1 cup sugar Set the bowl in a skillet of barely simmering water and whisk constantly until the egg and sugar mixture is warm to the touch.   Remove bowl from the heat and beat on high speed until the mixture is light colored, and has tripled in volume.   In three additions, sift the flour/cocoa mixture over the top and fold in with a rubber spatula.   Reheat the butter until it is hot and transfer to a medium bowl.   Fold into the batter with a spatula until completely incorporated about 1-½ cups of the egg mixture along with 1 teaspoon Vanilla.

Scrape this into the remaining egg mixture and fold in.   Scrape the batter into a parchment lined   9″ spring form pan.   Bake for 30- 35 minutes or until the sides begin to pull from the edges and the top springs back when lightly pressed.   Cool for ten minutes on a rack.   Un-mold the cake and cool completely right side up.

When cooled, split horizontally into two layers.   To fill the cake, spread evenly on one layer 1 cup of Davis & Davis Raspberry Jam.   Gently place the second layer on top of filling.   Refrigerate until completely chilled, about 35 minutes.

Chocolate Ganache Glaze

Bring to a boil in a small saucepan:

¾ cup heavy cream

Remove from the heat and add:

8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

Stir until most of the chocolate is melted.   Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.   Stir or whisk very gently until completely smooth.   Let stand at room temperature stirring occasionally until the mixture cools to a thick pour able consistency.

Place a wire rack over a cookie sheet.   Place Raspberry Jam filled cake onto rack and slowly pour the chocolate ganache glaze over the cake, allowing the glaze to run over the sides to completely cover cake.   Let stand till glaze has firmed.   Enjoy.

Note:   You may use any Davis & Davis Gourmet Foods Jams in this recipe.   We love the Very Berry Jam, the Blackberry Jam, and the Strawberry Pineapple Jam used in this recipe.   It’s hard to decide which one is the best.

Cheese Cake Squares



1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup powdered sugar
½ teaspoon salt (optional)
1 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1 teaspoon ice water


16 ounces softened cream cheese ½ cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 eggs 1 cup Davis & Davis Wild Blueberry Jam Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Grease a 9X13 inch pan.

For the crust:   Place flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and pulse.   Add butter and   continue to pulse until the dough begins to form a ball, add the ice water if needed to pull together the dough.   Press the dough mixture over the bottom of the prepared pan.   Bake approximately 20 minutes until the crust is just lightly brown.   Let cool for 35-40 minutes.

Prepare the filling while the crust is cooling. Using a mixer, combine the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended.   Do not over mix.   Add the eggs one at a time mixing until each egg is incorporated.   Pour this mixture over the cooled crust.   Using a tablespoon, dollop the Davis & Davis Wild Blueberry Jam on top of the filling.   Using a knife, swirl to create a marbled effect.

Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes or until the center is set.   Allow to cool completely before serving.   Once cooled, we like to chill the entire pan before cutting into squares.

NOTE:   You can use any one of Davis & Davis Gourmet Foods Jams to create this recipe.   We even like it with our Pumpkin Butter for a true Harvest Time treat.

Serves 12-16
