Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cake with Dark Chocolate Frosting

The original recipe calls for a triple layer cake (and I would’ve made it that way if serving for more than just myself! haha), and I used dark cocoa powder for the frosting, but I know the milk chocolate would be just as great.

Raspberry Choco Chip Cake

Red Velvet Cake

Sadly, not a repeat recipe. There was not really any flavor to this cake, other than an odd, slightly tangy taste. The texture is very moist, but it’s more like a cross between a cake texture and a cheesecake texture. Not bad at all, but not what I was anticipating. The frosting is good, but when does cream cheese, butter, and sugar taste bad. :)

The toothpick test came out clean at 23 minutes, although I still left it in the oven for an additional 2 minutes. The cake is very moist, but doughy.
