Chocolate and Raspberry Ciambella

I made this cake on a rainy spring day. What better way to forget a grey and gloomy day than with a beautiful cake, soft, bulging, smiling in its pretty raspberry and chocolate dress?

A real snack cake

I think I've told you this before, I often struggle with lunch. Lunch is not my favorite meal. I'm often stressed, busy, in a hurry... and voila, I can't eat. However, I love snacks. That sweet moment at the end of the afternoon, once the day slows down, when you can settle down, have a tea and breathe. And this cake fits perfectly with this kind of moment. Not too sweet, with a subtle touch of chocolate and fresh raspberries, it provides just the right amount of comfort without ruining all your efforts to stay healthy. Who wants to try it?
