When I came across this Raspberry Chocolate Pound Cake recipe in my mother-in-law’s recipe box I just had to try it. I knew that it would be perfect to take to a virtual weeklong party known as Choctoberfest too!

Fresh raspberries sit on a plate and in a bowl behind the slice.Noted on the recipe card was that she’d gotten it from “Karin – – Hershey Calendar”. When I was younger and cooking for my family, a lot of my recipes were taken from the ingredient package or given to me by friends. I don’t know if other people talk about food as much as I do, but I’ve been in the recipe sharing business for a long time. That’s probably how my Mother-in-law acquired this recipe too.

I did use Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa because I wanted a cake with a deep rich chocolate flavor. Just look at that deep rich color. It tastes as good as it looks my friends. The jam glaze added a great texture to the exterior and gave it a striking purple hue.[Tweet “Raspberry Chocolate Pound Cake is a 5-star winner! #Choctoberfest #food #recipe@Hersheys“]
