Chocolate Cake with Raspberries

Total decadence. Rich perfect chocolate cake with a bit of topping , then fresh, juicy raspberries and a bit of cream. Yum-a-licious! A coup de foudre for me. I cannot recall my first encounter with raspberries and chocolate, but I fell hard and continue to be enamoured. My sustaining college food was Dannon's frozen raspberry yogurt chocolate covered bars. From L'Etoile in San Francisco, to Louis XVI or Winsor Court in New Orleans, if it is on the menu, chances are it is my desert of choice after a wonderful meal. My favorite small treats are Godiva raspberry starfish. You know them. And aren't they succulent? It doesn't take much, just a bit and life feels like love again.
