Devil's Food Cake

devil's food cake

This cake is great served warm from the oven with a scoop of the vanilla ice cream on top. To make cake crumbs, crumble leftovers in a 200-degree oven until dry and crispy. Grind finely in a food processor.


2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 egg yolks
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup water


• Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

• Stir together the dry ingredients.

• In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs and egg yolks one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla. Alternately add the dry ingredients with the water. Mix well.

• Pour the batter into a greased 8- or 9-inch round baking pan. Bake until puffed and set in the middle, 25 to 30 minutes.
