My mom told me about a girl named Sally a while back. This girl had a blog called Sally’s Baking Addiction. My mom loves to bake, so naturally when she found this blog filled with delicious, sweet treat recipes, she was quite endeared to Sally. When my mom first discovered the blog, Sally was a regular gal who worked a regular job and happened to love to bake. Now, Sally’s blog has been discovered by a few more bakers and she no longer works a regular job, but instead has a cook book that has been published and solely blogs about her baking addiction. One could assume that she must be a pretty good baker… So I decided to test out one of her recipes for myself.
She’s pretty good. I needed a cake recipe for my sister-in-law’s birthday and I found this Raspberry Chocolate Chip Layer Cake recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction. It looked delicious – chocolate and fruit? The best of both worlds! It was really straight forward to make and Sally has photos on her blog of the recipe through the process, so I was able to double-check that everything was looking correct more-or-less while I baked. The hardest part for me was cutting the bottom layer’s top off to make it even. I’m convinced I have crooked eyes when it comes to doing things symmetrically! Other than that, it turned out beautifully (I think it did, at least!) and it satisfied my sweet taste buds perfectly. And the raspberries intermixed almost make you feel like you’re being somewhat healthy. 😉
