I agree with the other two reviewers. I also made this for the raspberry chocolate cake. It was very dry and little flavor. A box cake would have supplied the necessary elements for an outstanding raspberry chocolate cake with much less effort and expense. Definitely would not use recipe again.
I wish I had read the review before I made the cake. It was the worst cake I have ever made. They were dry and tasted little choclate flavoured cardboard. What a waste of time and money.
Made this for the raspberry chocolate cake. This cake is awfully dry! It had a decent consistency, but unless you are doing something with a LOT of cream or filling, it is just too dry. A good point is the amount of sugar. It isn't superfluously sweet so you could add in that extra sweet filling without overwhelming the flavor. Overall, however, I suggest skipping this one and using a recipe that is proven to come out a little more moist and just control the amount of sugar you put in.
