dark chocolate cake with raspberries

- photo by me

This is one of my favorite recipes to use for cake. I am more of a fan of this cake over regular chocolate cake because it is the perfect balance of sweetness. This cake paired with raspberries is a great combination and tastes very similar to the cake from P.F Changs called 'The Great Wall of Chocolate'

Dark Chocolate Cake (with Raspberries)
Recipe from Hersheys.com

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 2  eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans.
  2. Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans.

Hersheys Special Dark Chocolate Frosting
Recipe from Hersheys.com


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Melt butter, Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency. Add small amount additional milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla. About 2 cups frosting.
I frosted this cake pretty basic. I then added a few raspberries to the top of the cake and lightly dusted powdered sugar over the top. This cake would be great with raspberry jam or mashed raspberries in the filling as well. It's such a great way to offset the sweetness of the frosting.
