Chocolate Raspberry Danish Cake

Chocolate Raspberry Danish Cake

It seems like a lifetime since I have posted, my apologies.  
Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to dabble with the little black pots once again.  I had the opportunity of cooking for 330 youth and adults for 3 days, Let me tell you how crazy that was, my feet ached for weeks, and it took 2 weeks just to get everything put away. It was on this trip that I came up with this morsel of tastiness.  One of the gentlemen called to the committee owns his own Dutch Oven catering business. With my history of competitions we thought it would be fun for the last dinner... to have a dessert throw down.  He brought 3 of his desserts that he caters with, and I brought my Super Simple Apple Cobbler and I also did Blueberry Pull-a-parts but knowing I had to kick it up a notch I also made a spin on my Strawberry Danish Cake

This was also fueled by the fruitfulness my raspberry bushes this year. 

Chocolate Raspberry Danish Cake

1 Devil's food cake mix - made by the directions on the box. 
Baked in a 12" Dutch Oven 
8 coals on the bottom
16 coals on the top

1 - 16 oz. tub of cool whip                       1 - 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar                             1 – 1 lb. Raspberries
1 package of Junket Danish Dessert (Raspberry flavor)

While the cake cools, make the Danish Dessert following the pie glaze directions on the back of the box.  Mix together 1/2 cup of powdered sugar with 1 -16 oz. of cool whip. Mix well. In a separate bowl mix 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 1 - 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese.  Mix well. Mix the cream cheese mixture and the cool whip mixture together in a large bowl. Spread cool whip/cream cheese mixture across the top of the cake. Mix the raspberries into the Danish Dessert then spread across the top.

Now if you are feeling adventurous you can make the cake from scratch. But when cooking for a crowd, the mix is the way to go.

To finish the story…. We each did 3 ovens full of each dessert… so if you are counting that is 18 ovens full of sweetness….You guessed it.... there was not a drop left.  The winner of the throw down?  Well you are looking at it. But dang,  it was some stiff competition – the Peach pineapple cobbler he made was fantastic! (I’ll have to see if he will share the recipe…..)

I also had the opportunity to take this on a camping trip this past weekend and not wanting to mess with missing cream cheese by hand – I mixed these together beforehand and stored them in the cooler till I made the cakes, and it worked beautifully. Again, not a drop leftover.

I hope you enjoy.
And as always, have fun cookin’
