A dear friend's brother shared this recipe with me. He made it for my friend's 50th surprise birthday party and I fell in love with its chocolately and raspberry decadence.

I can't believe that this was a recipe that I hadn't posted before! I'd love to hear what JAP members think of this cake.

Chocolate and raspberry is my favorite combination.
