Special Occasion Chocolate Cake

I don't do much baking anymore, but I keep loads of recipes bookmarked for special occasions. Yesterday was an extraordinarily special occasion: it was our last Sunday dinner with Cecilia for a while, so I pulled out a chocolate cake recipe that I had been eyeing up for a while.

This No joke dark chocolate cake just looked too good to miss. I made just a few changes: American recipes tend to go heavy in the sweet stuff, so I reduced the amount of maple syrup to about 1/4 cup, added in a mashed banana and upped the amount of fat to make up for the lost liquid. Then I put cream and raspberries in the middle instead of the chocolate cream. Oh my, it was amazing!
No joke
