Raspberry Chocolate Cake Recipe

raspberry chocolate cakeI’ve been told numerous times before that I’m indecisive. Ironically, if it is a big decision, for instance something that relates to business or family, I can make the decision immediately. However if it has anything at all to do with food & ordering at a restaurant, I’m hopeless.recipe raspberry chocolate cake

I can’t tell you the amount of times people ask me what my favorite thing to bake is or what my favorite food is. The answer is simple: I. Don’t. Know. It completely depends on what I’m in the mood for, which is usually 3/4 the menu & everything in my fridge. Yet if I had to choose just one dessert it would most likely be chocolate cake with ice cream. Ok, yes, technically that’s two desserts but served in one bowl so I’m going to let it slide. Especially if it’s this chocolate cake with raspberries & some cookie dough ice cream.

One of the best parts about this dessert is it stays great for about one week after you’ve made it. Realistically, we both know it won’t last past a day or two but for those of you out there with some sort of self control, congrats you can have cake all week! Microwave a slice for 30 seconds & it’s good as new! Top with some extra raspberries & obviously a few scoops of ice cream & you’ll be in dessert heaven.
