Let them eat cake! Whether Marie Antoinette actually said those words or not, I’m all for it!
This flourless cake is made with dark chocolate and tart raspberries. To make it even better, you could pour a rich Chocolate Ganache over the cake, then plate each slice set over a drizzle or ‘puddle’ of Raspberry Coulis.
Make this Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Cake as simple, or has decadent as you like.
