the best chocolate cake recipe

I did try many recipe before finally find this one. It’s originally a Devil’s cake. A Devil’s Food Cake is an American classic. With its almost black color, it is probably the most ‘chocolately’ of the chocolate cakes. To go with that rich chocolate flavor is a cake with a wonderfully soft crumb that is dense and moist. For a double dose of chocolate we fill and frost this cake with a fudgy chocolate ganache.
While no one knows for sure how it got its name “Devil’s” Food Cake, one opinion is that it’s because it is the polar opposite of the light and airy white Angel Food Cake. Others say it’s just just too sinful to eat. We do know that recipes for this cake started to appear around 1900.

This cake is moist and has the perfect crumb. I cannot imagine making a chocolate cake using any other recipe. It is so easy to make and puts doctored cake mix recipes to shame. I’m eating a piece of the cake as I’m writing this, drooling all over my keyboard. It is insanely delicious. A decades search was worth the wait. Every…decadent…bite. Who wants cake?
