How to Make Double Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 with rack at center
  • 2Grease and flour a 12 C bundt pan or use cooking spray with flour
    Sprinkle the chopped pecans and chocolate chips in the bottom of the pan
  • 3Place the cake mix, pudding mix, sugar, water, oil and eggs in a mixing bowl and blend on low for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and blend at medium for 2 minutes more. The batter will be thick.
  • 4Remove 1 1/4 C of batter and place in a small bowl. Stir in the chocolate syrup and the rasberry jam until well incorporated. Set aside.
  • 5Pour the rest of the batter carefully into the bundt pan and smooth it. Pour the raspberry batter on top and use a butter knife to cut it into the batter below. Smooth the top.
  • 6Carefully tap the pan a couple of times on the counter to force any air bubbles to the surface of the batter
  • 7Put the bundt in the oven and bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Test the cake with wooden skewer..should come out clean
  • 8Run a sharp knife around the upper edge and cool for about 10 minutes. Invert on a wire rack, tap the pan, and slide the cake out onto another wire rack. Let cool completely before glazing.
  • 9Make the Glaze:
  • 10Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over low heat.
  • 11Add cocoa powder and heavy cream, whisk until the mixture thickens..do not boil it.
  • 12Turn off the heat and add the powdered sugar and vanilla..keep whisking until the glaze is smoth and shiny.
  • 13Pour over cake, let cool. Then enjoy!
