This Raspberry Chocolate Layer Cake is super moist and layered with smooth chocolate ganache and raspberry filling, all covered in a fudgy chocolate frosting! It’s rich, full of chocolate and heavenly!
So getting out and about with two babies is no easy task and I desperately needed to make a grocery store trip yesterday. The hubs was working so my mother-in-law watched Ashton while I took Brooks on his first trip to the grocery store. It wasn’t the best day for our first trip, since it was raining, but we made do.
The first thing I noticed after putting his car seat in the grocery cart is where in the world do you put the groceries?! I was shopping for both regular food and baking ingredients, so it was a big trip. By the time I was halfway done, the cart was overflowing. Brooks was quite unhappy when a package found its way towards his foot. I finally just checked out, took it all to the car and made a second trip for the last few things. How is it that nobody has a good shopping cart for moms with babies yet?
Anyhow, Brooks did great. He fell asleep for a bit (until that package found his foot) and finally got upset just as we were leaving. The kid was hungry so I understand. We managed to get home and it seemed fairly uneventful until I took him out of his car seat. A blowout!! So yea, hungry crying and a poo at the end, but alll in all a success. We survived anyway! He’s got plenty more grocery runs in his future because – as he will learn – mommy bakes a lot. 🙂
And one day he will enjoy cakes like this one. This is a cake I’d been dying to make at the end of my pregnancy and it just couldn’t quite make happen. So it ended up being my first cake postpartum! I’ve been so excited to share it with you!
The cake base is my favorite chocolate cake! Insanely moist and SO chocolatey! Don’t be alarmed by the thinness of the batter or the low bake temperature. It’s all correct and gives the best cake.
The filling is a combination of a layer of chocolate ganache and homemade raspberry filling. The ganache gives a little fudgy factor and the raspberry adds a little tart to the sweet. Amazing!
And then the frosting is made with loads of melted chocolate, making it nice and fudgy and giving it the best flavor and texture. It just about melts in your mouth. The whole combination is out of this world good! I can’t wait for you to try it!
