Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Filling

chocolate cake with raspberry filling

This chocolate chip cake was the very first cake recipe that I tried out for my first decorated cake. Now seven years later it is still one of my most used recipes. I got the recipe from a danish online cake community but I have made some changes over time. I like to use it for layered cakes, cake bites, 3D cakes or just plain with a spread of thin royal icing and sprinkles on top.

I always like to use a filling together with this chocolate cake. Chocolate ganache or fruit mousse. I used to use a store bought mousse mixture but nothing beats a good home made fruit mousse. So when I saw a tv program with a danish pastry chef making raspberry mousse I thought I would give it a try.

I hope that you will enjoy the chocolate chip cake with raspberry filling just as much as I do.

      It’s not that you can’t do it. I just never use the fan for my cakes. I find that it makes a hard crust and that the top of the cake bakes faster than than the rest of the cake.

    Would i be able to melt the chocolate chips for the batter for a deeper chocolate taste? Would that effect anything in a negative way?

      I have never tried this with melted chocolate all these year that I have baked this cake. Always used the choc chips. So I can only say that you will have to try it out.

    I am thinking of using this recipe as a birthday cake for my little sister, would it still work if i used orange buttercream in the place of the mousse ?
    Also, does the recipe make enough to fill 3 shallow 8 inch cake pans ?

      You want to make three cakes as in three layers? and not splitting any of the three cakes? How tall are your pans?
