Chocolate Raspberry Mini Cake

image

Occasion: Valentine’s Day with the Hubs!

Cake:

  • My go-to chocolate cake recipe from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/dark-chocolate-cake-i/. My dad initially found this recipe and made it with an oh-so-sinful dark chocolate frosting for my mom’s birthday one year. It’s so amazing that I don’t think I’ll ever use another chocolate cake recipe again!

Frosting:

  • Raspberry Buttercream
    • Start with any old buttercream recipe. I usually just make it up as I go.
    • Substitute pureed (and strained) raspberries for about half the amount of milk.
    • Add more of less of the berry puree to taste, and add powdered sugar slowly until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Chocolate ganache
    • Start with your favorite chocolate ganache recipe and add a small amount of strained raspberry puree to taste.
