How to make Strawberry and Chocolate Cake Filling

I like to fill my cakes with these delicious fillings to make them moist. My mum used to always make them and I grew up with these wonderful memories of what a cake filling should taste like. You will see that they are very different in consistency from what you get in the USA. My fillings are runny and soak into the cake. The fillings you get here in cake shops or supermarket bought cakes are often made out of buttercream and are thicker (adding height to your cake but no moisture).

I am going to give you here the basic recipes for my 2 favorite ones: Strawberry and Chocolate. However, you can adapt this recipe to make them out of pretty much any fruit flavor you like, just replace the strawberry jam for your favorite fruit jam and you are done!

Strawberry or any other Fruit Filing

Ingredients:

1 can of condensed milk
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup of jam


To make the strawberry filling, put about 1/4 cup of strawberry jam, 1/4 cup of milk (or water for less rich flavor) and 1 can of condensed milk in a pot. Heat it all up until it is all mixed together.




Chocolate Filing

Ingredients:

1 can of condensed milk
1/4 cup of milk
Big Bar of chocolate (milk or dark is OK - I like Venezuelan chocolate) - The bigger the better!

To make the chocolate filling, melt the chocolate in 1/4 cup of milk and 1 can of condensed milk. Heat it all up until it is all mixed together.



That is it! Now yo can pour it over your cakes!
