  • 1 package chocolate cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups water

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen sweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
