Heat the oven to 180C. Butter a cake form (diameter ~20 cm)
Mix melted butter and sugar, add beat up eggs. Sift flour and cacao powder together and add it to the egg mixture.
Add vanilla essence and milk.

Put the cake form with the mixture into the oven for 35-40 minutes, then let it cool for a while.

Mix mascarpone and milk until the mixture is soft.
Melt the chocolate on a water bath. I used both milk and white chocolate because I didn't buy enough of the former xDD;

Mix the chocolate and the mascaropne-milk mixture!
The original recipe offered to add sugar powder, but I forewent the step because I thought the cream would be too sweet.
After mixing put the cream in the fridge for half an hour.

Cut the shortcake in two and put approximately 1/3 of the cream on it.
Use a thread to make the cut even.

Put the raspberries on!
I couldn't find fresh raspberries so I sued frozen ones - as a result the cake wasn't really pretty... But tasty still!

;___; Not as pretty as I hoped...

Tired, but proud!
