    Ingredients Measures
    Unsweetened cocoa ½ cup + 2 teaspoons
    All-purpose flour 1 cup
    Baking soda ½ teaspoon
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Granulated sugar 1¼ cups
    Fat-free milk 1 cup
    Unsweetened chocolate, melted 1 ounce
    Vanilla extract 1½ teaspoons
    Large egg whites
    Seedless raspberry jam ¼ cup
    Confectionary sugar 1 tablespoon
    Fresh raspberries 3 pints
    1. Heat oven to 350°F.
