I am just back from a vacation in Bhutan. The place is beautiful and mesmerizing. I would love to tell you more about it in a separate post. But for now, this Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cake is delightful enough to be talked about in detail!
With just a day left until Christmas eve, I needed something quick yet rich to bake for the festival. Christmas and Diwali are equally loved and celebrated in our house. Our huge Christmas tree is all decked up since a month! If I wasn’t really pressed for time, I would have made some lavish layer cake for Christmas. But honestly speaking, this decadent Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cake turned out just perfect for celebrating!
I zeroed in on a Chocolate Cake but was wondering what to combine it with, and then these fresh raspberries came to my rescue. If I ever combine chocolate with fruits, I always choose cherries or raspberries. Strawberries come a close second. This fudgy moist Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cake is a splendid dessert to bake for any celebration.
The cake recipe is an eggless, one bowl recipe that comes together in a jiffy. It’s then frosted with my favorite rich chocolate buttercream and garnished with fresh raspberries and grated white chocolate. I love how my pictures look so festive and Christmasy :).
Rich, creamy and delicious, the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cake makes for a decadent dessert. I hope you too have something homebaked on your Christmas table. Homemade baked goods are a joy over Christmas. If you are looking for a rum soaked treat for your Christmas baking, try your hands at this Fruitcake biscotti. You don’t need to presoak the fruits and it’s just perfect for holiday dunking! Merry Christmas :).
