This sweet is a great holiday treat for the end of any meal. A chocolate cake filled with raspberry filling is decadent enough to impress, but easy enough for a baker at any level. Also, you don't have to make the cake chocolate if you have someone who has allergies or you just want something a bit different, it's still gorgeous and delicious either way.

  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) devil's food cake mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 13 cup raspberry brandy or 13 cup raspberry liqueur

  2. Mix together the cake mix, sour cream, eggs, and raspberry brandy on medium speed for 3 minutes. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Divide the batter among three 8" prepared round cake pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
