Chocolate Angel Food Cake and Raspberry Parfait


  • 1 store bought chocolate angel food cake, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup framboise
  • 1 cup very cold heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons best-quality cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries
  • Grated bittersweet chocolate


Drizzle cake cubes with framboise and toss to combine.
Using a hand held mixer, beat together the cream, sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Keep cold until ready to serve.
Place a few cubes of the angel food cake in the bottom of 4 parfait glasses. Top with a few tablespoons of the chocolate cream, a few tablespoons of raspberries and a little grated chocolate. Repeat to make 4 layers, ending with chocolate cream. Garnish with a few raspberries and grated chocolate.
