Today let’s talk about dessert! How about a chocolate cake sundae with this gorgeous fresh blackberry sauce. I have put this versatile sauce on everything from sandwiches to croissants. Blackberries and chocolate not only look amazing together but the flavor combination is out of this world. I love this sauce and it is so simple to make. And who doesn’t love a simple recipe?
If you ever have left over cake, freeze it! You can always make cake pops, sundaes, or just eat it as is when the craving strikes. Our chocolate cake stays good in the freezer up to 2 months. I try to use that timeline for all leftover frozen cake. The only cake I saved longer than 2 months was my wedding cake. The tradition was to eat it on our first wedding anniversary. So one year later that cake came out of the freezer and after one bite it went straight into the trash. Yuck! Okay, let’s get back to this delicious sundae and the recipe.
