Dark Chocolate Chiffon Cake by Angela Seah Thulin

I was doing grocery when i spotted this bar of chocolate. Thinking i could probably use it to bake dark chiffon cake, i decided to give it a try!. I was tremedously happy when this chocolate chiffon cake turn out so well. The dark chocolate's rich taste, the right sweetness and the soft texture follow by a hint of raspberry flavour ... I took 2 slices straight after i cut them. Love them to the max!
