Elina's Raspberry Chocolate Cake

I'm afraid I don't know who Elina is, but I like her cake! I haven't actually made this myself yet, but had it at a birthday party, with dark chocolate frosting and a dollop of whipped cream. Mmm! If you like the combination of fruit and chocolate flavours, give this a try! The cake gets better with time, so bake a day or two before serving and keep refrigerated.
