While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Today you’ll have some sympathy for the devil – May 19 is National Devil’s Food Cake Day.
While the origins about the name of this airy chocolate layer cake remain mysterious, it’s easy to agree that this dessert is sweeter than sin. If death by chocolate were an offense, this cake would be one crafty culprit.
Devil’s food cake distinguishes itself from other cakes by using cocoa and coffee as the main sources of flavor rather than actual chocolate. Boiling water is often used instead of milk, as well.
Just watch out for any devils in disguise sniffing around your kitchen. You can tell them to go you-know-where.
