~Fun Food Friday...Chocolate rasp. cake & Chicken club pizza~

~I found this yummy recipe on p. 67 of T.O.H. April/May 2009. I love recipes that call for ingredients that you normally have on hands...and this one does!~
~Chewy Chocolate Raspberry cake~
3 cups sugar (I NEVER use 3 cups of sugar in a cake. I only used 1 3/4 cup in mine and we thought it was plenty sweet!)
3/4 lb. melted butter
4 eggs
1 Tab. vanilla extract
1 Tab. almond extract (I only added a TAD for my fam. doesn't care for a lot.)
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup raspberry jam
1 cup mini choc. chips
3/4 cup sliced almonds
Preheat your oven to 300.
Mix sugar and butter in a mixing bowl on low. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add the extracts. Add dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour into greased and papered 9" cake pan. Carefully smooth out a thin layer of raspberry jam. Top with choc. chips and half of sliced almonds. Carefully cover with remaining batter. Sprinkle top of cake with the remaining sliced almonds. Bake for 1 hour and 45 min. to 2 hours. (Mine only took an I would check it after an hour...then keep setting your timer.)
~The other day I found this recipe on Amy's blog. I made it last night and we enjoyed it.
~Chicken Club Pizza~
Pizza crust (ready to bake, or make your own. I made mine.)
1/4 cup Mayo
1/2 c. Ranch dressing

Crumbled bacon
1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
1 tomato, chopped

Heat oven to 400 degrees
Bake pizza crust for 10 minutes
Mix mayo and 1/3 cup dressing and spread on crust.
Top with half the cheese, chicken, remaining cheese and bacon.
Bake 5 minutes or until crust is golden.
Top with lettuce and tomatoes. (I didn't have any lettuce.)
