Total 2 hours and 30 minutes (includes cooling time)
Active 50 mins
Makes 8 to 12 servings
This is my great-grandmother’s chocolate cake recipe. I was never able to meet my great-grandmother, but I have learned so much about her by studying the recipes she has handed down for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. The cake is both decadent and light as a result of separating the eggs and folding in beaten egg whites at the very end. I added the fresh raspberries because they lend a lovely layer of flavor and brightness to the cake.
TIP: Having an organized workspace will make the cake making process go smoothly. Prepare dry ingredients, butter mixture, melt chocolate, and beat egg whites, then put the cake together.
