Whole wheat chocolate Blueberry cake (Cake de chocolate con harina integral y arándanos)



This chocolate blueberry cake is really good! But when I saw the pictures , I noticed   maybe I put a lot of mint decoration !! 
But you guys can decorate it as you like :)
Sorry for that but I was so focused and happy doing that I did not realize, as Keith says tut!

EN ESPAÑOL
Cake de chocolate y harina integral con arándanos







Aún no salen los nuevos arándanos y si hay deben ser carísimos. Asi que derechamente pensé en hacer esta receta con arándanos congelados.
Aqui en Chile tenemos estupendas empresas de arándanos y frutos congelados que no son tan caros.
Se pueden encontrar todo el año en los supermercados.
Hay que estar viendo. Cuando encuentro ofertas compro y congelo asi tengo para todo el año y por supuesto congelo en verano.
La frambuesa congela maravillosamente.

Me encantó que esta receta llevara harina integral y aún asi quedara como brownie!





Ingredientes

1 1/2 taza de harina integral
1 taza de azucar rubia 
6 cucharadas de cocoa   o chocolate sin azúcar
1 cucharadita polvos de hornear
1/2 cucharadita de bicarbonato de sodio
1/4 cucharadita de sal
3/4 taza de agua
2 huevos
1/2 taza de arándanos congelados o frescos

Para el glaseado de chocolate
1/2 taza de arándanos frescos o congelados
1/2 taza de chocolate en trozos (en barra)
3 cucharadas de crema espesa

Preparación

Precalentar el horno a 180°c

  4. Gloria, Love blueberries and chocolate together...and this cake looks really moist! I think that the mint leaves were the perfect decoration...otherwise the cake would have looked like a big bumpy brown lump. Nice touch! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  33. Take out the whole wheat and I'm all for it. Wheat just sounds too healthy for me, Gloria. Can we replace it with chocolate? That'd be awesome! ;)
