May 19, 2017 6:59am CST
Yes, finally, my kind of holiday! Now I have to run to the pantry and decide if I can make one of those. Devil's Food is my favorite cake....It always was. My mother was the world's worst cook but the best baker. She made a mean Devil's Food Cake with the best frosting ever. I just checked, I have a cake mix.....my mother made hers from scratch - oh well, mine will be fine! Are you a fan of Devil's Food Cake?

@responsiveme I found mixes are better than from scratch and I'm always into the easy way to do things.

Yes, I am a big fan of Devil's Food Cake. Chocolate cake with chocolate icing is the perfect cake in my opinion!

Devil's Food is great cake, though I have had one for years. What icing did you use?

Butter cream probably. Sometimes I make it in bundt pan and no frosting needed.

I think it is a sort of Angel Food Cake, but made with chocolate. I have never tried one.

It is not Angel Food Cake - its a chocolate cake...why they call it Devil's food I don't really know. I won't eat Angel Food - it's boring and flavorless. I made it once and had to drown it with strawberries to eat it.

@AbbyGreenhill I know that this is a chocolate cake, but the texture seems more or less the same of its white counterpart, Black Devil, White Angel.

I can't remember the last time I had it or what was different about it. Maybe I need to buy a packet one too!
