Chocolate Raspberry Cake Recipe

This chocolate raspberry cake recipe tastes like you spent hours on it, but it's so simple, because it starts with a cake mix. The combination of chocolate and raspberries is a marriage made in heaven, and this chocolate cake is a terrific way to enjoy it!


  • 1 devil's food cake mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • .
  • Raspberry Glaze:
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jelly
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • .
  • Chocolate Ganache:
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
  • .
  • Fresh raspberries for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan.

  2. With an electric mixer, beat cake mix, eggs, sour cream, water, buttermilk and oil together until smooth.

  3. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 42-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  4. Cool completely.

  5. Heat raspberry jelly and water in the microwave for 30-90 seconds until smooth. With a pastry brush, brush raspberry glaze over cooled cake. Let cool 1 hour.

Made this dessert but the amount of cream called for in the ganache is not nearly enough! All other recipes I've found for ganache call for a lot more cream than 2 tablespoons! Using the amount of cream the recipe states make the ganache way too thick. I added additional cream but it was still too thick & heavy. Don't know how it tasted--it was made as a gift but would probably try this again.
