The combination of chocolate and raspberry has been a popular flavor pairing in desserts for many years. This recipe takes the classic flavors and elevates them into a creamy and rich torte that is sure to impress.


How to prepare

  1. To make the cake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 15.5"x10"x1" jelly roll pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the corn oil spread and stir in the sugar. Remove from heat and stir in the milk, vinegar, and vanilla.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Gradually add this mixture to the sugar mixture, stirring with a whisk until well blended.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool the cake for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool completely.
  6. To make the filling and assemble, thaw and drain the frozen raspberries. Put them in a blender container and blend until smooth.
  7. In a small mixer bowl, combine the whipped topping mix and cold skim milk (do not add vanilla). Add red food coloring and fold in the raspberry puree.
  8. Cut the cake crosswise into 4 equal pieces. Place one piece on a cake or serving plate and spread jam on top. Then spread a scant 0.75 cup of the cream filling over the jam. Repeat with the other 3 cake pieces.
  9. Use the remaining jam and cream filling to garnish the top as desired. Refrigerate the torte until ready to serve.
  10. For nutritional information, refer to the per serving details.

How did I get this recipe?

The moment I found this recipe is etched in my memory. It was a warm summer day, and I was rummaging through an old box of recipes that had been passed down to me from my own grandmother. As I sifted through the yellowed, stained pages, my eyes fell upon a recipe card for a chocolate and raspberry cream torte. My heart skipped a beat as I read through the ingredients and instructions. It sounded like the perfect dessert to make for my family's upcoming dinner party.

The combination of rich chocolate, tart raspberries, and creamy filling seemed like a match made in heaven. I knew I had to make it.

I set to work gathering the ingredients, carefully measuring out each one as I followed the instructions on the recipe card. The scent of dark chocolate filled the air as I melted it in a double boiler, stirring it until it was smooth and glossy. I whipped up the cream filling, folding in fresh raspberries for a burst of color and flavor. Finally, I assembled the torte, layering the chocolate cake with the creamy filling and topping it with more raspberries.

As I placed the finished torte in the refrigerator to set, I couldn't help but feel a sense of pride and excitement. I knew that this dessert would be a hit with my family, and I couldn't wait to see their reactions when they tasted it. The hours seemed to drag by as I waited for the dinner party to begin.

I beamed with pride as they showered me with compliments and asked for the recipe.

From that day on, the chocolate and raspberry cream torte became a staple in my repertoire of recipes. I made it for every special occasion, from birthdays to holidays to Sunday dinners. Each time, it was met with the same enthusiasm and appreciation from my loved ones.

Over the years, I shared the recipe with friends and neighbors, who all marveled at its deliciousness. They would often ask me where I had learned to make such a delectable dessert, and I would smile and tell them the story of how I had discovered the recipe in an old box of family treasures.

As I grew older, my passion for cooking never waned. I continued to experiment with new recipes and techniques, always striving to create dishes that would bring joy and comfort to those around me. But the chocolate and raspberry cream torte remained a favorite, a timeless classic that never failed to impress.
