Spongy and moist, this chocolate cake has a rich cocoa flavor and a subtle hint of coffee throughout. This cake is made with a combination of butter and yogurt for a cake that has absolutely no hint of dryness. Baked for 50 minutes in a cake mold of your choosing, this decadently rich chocolate cake is then covered in a white chocolate or milk chocolate icing. Garnish with fresh raspberries.
