To tell you the truth, pillsbury or Duncan makes an amazing chocolately and moist cake. And as for rasberry filling, there's a great recipe in the recipe box. Just look up rasberry filling and it will pop up. Good luck.!

For my chocolate cakes, I do one of 2 different recipes.

The first is:
the recipe here for Darn Good Chocolate cake but I omit the chocolate chips - very moist.

The second is:
The WASC recipe here, but instead of 1 C of flour (I use half the recipe) I put in 2/3 C of flour and 1/3 c of cocoa.

Both are very well received....

the "darn good chocolate cake" recipe on here is awesome! Very moist and durable too.

I use icing fruits for raspberry filling, just add to your butter cream. Or use seedless raspberry preserves mixed with butter cream!

The recipe here on CC---Durable Cake for 3D or Wedding Cakes---is really yummy.

1 Duncan Hines Yellow (or White) cake mix
4 egg whites
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 small pkg of instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup sour cream

Instead use chocalate mix and chocolate pudding or even better use the Devil's food with the new Devil's food pudding. Really yummy.

this chocolate cake recipe is moist, my customers love it. Chocolatetown Special Cake

½ cup Cocoa Powder
½ cup boiling water
2/3 cup shortening
1 ¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 ¼ cup flour
½ teaspoons baking soda
1 1/3 cups buttermilk or sour milk
(to sour milk, use 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon white vinegar plus milk to equal 1 1/3 cup)
Heat oven to 350. In a small bowl stir together boiling water and cocoa powder and set aside. In large mixer bowl, beat shortening, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to shortening mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Blend in cocoa powder mixture, beat well.


For a simple raspberry filling, take a bag of frozen raspberries and put them in a pot with a cup of sugar and 1 cup of water. Let that simmer and add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken it.

Yummmmm! All this talk of choc cake is making me hungry!!

I doctor up a mix and use the Choc syrup frosting recipe from here..... To die for!!! I'll have to try some of these scratch recipes next time i feel like experimenting.
Can't help much on the raspberry filling--I tried 2 different ones and neither were great...... Although, one time I added a little bit of pureed strawberries to my choc syrup frosting recipe and it was awesome!

The guys at my hubby's firehouse think this is the best chocolate cake ever and I use it now for my customers and have always gotten comments on how moist it is.

1 pkg devil's food cake mix (I use pillsbury)
1 pkg (small one) of devils food instant pudding mix (you can use chocolate, fudge)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs

Mix all together, the batter will be extremely thick!

I use Pillsbury dark chocolate cake mix. Sometimes I'll substitute Hershey's chocolate syrup for 1/2 the water to add a little pizazz! Everyone thinks it is great!

For those that have made the darn good cake:
Does your cake sink in the middle?
Have you tried it with a sheet pan?

I use a recipie from epicurious.com It's the chocolate-stout recipie (originally puplished in Bon Appetite magazine) It has become my all-time most requested cake, and I'd be hard-pressed to use another. It's sooo moist and not-too-sweet so it can take just about any filling. I generally use a chocolate-cream cheese filling. Here it is

Hope that helps

Ooh I'd like to know the answer for that too - and how much does make? how many cups of batter? I need to make a 7 x 13 (or is it 11) cake.
