Chocolate-Raspberry Cake

Recipe photo courtesy of Con Poulos

This beauty is baked with a splash of Chambord and layered with a sweet raspberry filling, both of which offer bright counterpoints to the thick layer of chocolate-cream cheese frosting and whole berries scattered on top.

      No clue, I always just Google if I am lost, or most of my cookbooks have that exchange. But usually a quick Google search works. Sorry no one helped you a year and a half ago, hopefully this will help someone else and I hope you found a way to convert measurements.

    I've made this twice now. I liked it very much, and it does look impressive. Just wondering if others have been left with copious amounts of frosting.

      We used to put frosting on graham crackers when i was a kid :) No clue why, but it was good! Or I would suggest whipping up a half-dozen (or however much frosting you have) cupcakes and using the frosting there. HTH! <3

    This was a really bad recipe. There was far too much sugar and why do people use frosting ? I find American deserts far too sweet and really heavy. I though the raspberries would add some lightness, but it was killed by all the sugar. Very disappointed that this is even considered edible to be honest. Will stick to the European desserts from now on.

      The internet has either brought complainers out of the woodwork, or for some reason, some folks just aren't happy unless they are being negative. This is not a "bad recipe", you clearly did not like it, and I can't imagine why you made it given your personal thoughts about sweets. America is a HUGE country, so it always makes me laugh when people say "all American desserts" or something equally broad. I bake dozens of different kinds of cakes for different palates, and while I love sweets and frosting, no one in my family does, yet I bake their bday desserts always. We talk about favours first and textures and everyone is happy! I have to say, if you are from a country that considers *offal* something to serve to guests? Oh and the requisite fruit cake for weddings? I'm so glad to live in the land of frosting. Or my Mom's rum cake, which has no frosting and is incredible! I just don't think it is fair to say that the problem was with the recipe.

    Extra Frosting can be kept in the refrigerator in a sealed container.

    This was an absolutely gorgeous cake. We would try to strain the middle raspberry puree perhaps to decrease the number of raspberry seeds. Another suggestion is to add the frosting to the middle of the cake as well. Overall though - wonderful!

    Made this cake a few months back. Not only was it beautiful, but the taste was spot on. It remained moist for days. I'm making it again today for dessert for our cruise planning dinner at a friend's house. This is my go to dessert recipe when I want to impress friends.
