    Ravenseyes's Note:

    I bought a convection oven and I was playing around with some recipes and combined a German chocolate recipe with a fudgy chocolate recipe and then my mind just went in a totally different direction - the directions the recipe that I wrote here are for three layers and I think in a conventional oven that would be best - I tried doing my first one which is pictured here in a spring form (because of the convection oven) and then just sliced it in half - I would not recommend that - I was lucky I had wrapped tin foil around the bottom of the pan - the batter is so liquid that it runs through - so three single layer pans will work best - I made this last weekend for my neighbors birthday and everyone was drooling - hope you enjoy it!

      This recipe is absolutely fabulous. I made it for a cake auction to raise money for a mission trip and it was huge hit, bringing in $300.00!

      I can't believe I forgot to rate this! Absolutely delicious. The chocolate and fresh raspberries are a heavenly combination. I made it as a layer cake, but next time will make as a sheet cake as it is easier to store in the refrigerator. The chambourd is very expensive, but makes a wonderful addition to this fancy cake.

      AMAZING! I couldn't get enough of this cake! It's rich and refreshing at the same time, so you want more and more and enjoy bite after bite, and before you know it, the cake is gone :) We LOVED this so much, I am making it for my mom for her birthday. I can't wait for her to taste it. I will be queen for the day with this one! Thanks for sharing!
