Chocolate Raspberry Cake
Chocolate has a magnetic appeal to many of us. You know who you are. You scan the dessert menu, knowing that every other tantalizing offering will pale in comparison to whatever the chocolate offering is.
Our Raspberry Chocolate Cake is worth a special stop. We layer our version of an old-fashioned devil’s food chocolate cake with a creamy mocha mousse and fresh raspberries and finish it with a bittersweet chocolate buttercream and chocolate cake crumbs. The cake is light, and the raspberries provide a moist tartness to balance out the chocolatey sweetness. The cake crumbs give it a nice crunch.
Mi Kim, Macrina’s pastry chef (recently recognized as one of Zagat’s 30 under 30 gastronomic rock stars), raves about this one. It’s one of her all-time favorite cakes. She’s lobbying for it to be on the menu year round.
It’ll be featured in our cafes all May. Chocolate lovers, come get your fix!
