      7. Prep-the-PansYour cakes will be baked in a bath of boiling water, so prepare a large pan that will hold your smaller cake pan or ramekins. Boil water, then pour the batter into small cake pan or ramekins. Fill the larger cake pan with water around the smaller pans.
      8. HawtBake cakes for 45 minutes. When done, the center will still look wet - this is expected. Remove small dishes from the large pan and let cool in the refrigerator overnight.

      10. SauceIn a small saucepan, combine ingredients and cook over medium heat. Mash up the berries and stir constantly until boiling. Once boiling, continue to stir for 1 minute.
      11. Strain-the-SauceStrain the sauce over fine mesh to separate seeds.

      Pro Tip:

      The Raspberry Sauce is also amazing over ice cream and yogurt!  This recipe makes a large batch, so if you don’t choose to cut it go ahead and treat yourself to even more yummyness!

      The cake is very dense and rich – it would be lovely with some whipped cream to go with the sauce.  Also try some mint!  Mmmmm!

        Will the cake come out of the ramekins easily?

          We always eat them right out of the ramekins, but I bet the cakes will come out ok if you grease the ramekins before pouring the batter in!
