Rich Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Cake

Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Cake #valentinesday

I love when you guys let me know that you have tried recipes or when you suggest variations to recipes that I have shared. This chocolate raspberry pudding cake is a result of one of those suggestions. One of my lovely readers (Hi, Amber!) made a comment on my Rich Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cake. She thought that it would taste good with a fruit such as raspberry. Boy, was she right!

Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Cake #valentinesday

Swap out the peanut butter and peanut butter chips for some raspberry preserves and dark chocolate chips and you have one rich, gooey, chocolaty and raspberry dessert! The cake is like that of  a gooey brownie stuffed with dark and white chocolate chips. The raspberry preserves are swirled on top and complement the chocolate sauce perfectly. My only regret about this pudding cake is that I didn’t try it sooner! The preparation is easy and the baking is done in a slow cooker. Throw it in when you get home from work and you have a warm, chocolaty dessert ready in time for after dinner. . .very convenient!
