My parents gave me some of their raspberries and I made this delicious dessert cake as well as some jam. The recipe comes from a book called 'Chocolate the best ever'.The raspberries in this luxurious dark chocolate cake give it a fresh, tangy flavour. Serve with fresh raspberries and whipped cream. I recommend the cake to be served right from the fridge.
