National Devil's Food Cake Day!
What is chocolatey, light, decadent, and moist? Devil's food
cake of course! Today is a celebration of this delicious dessert, which
is considered the counterpart to the classic white angel food cake.
Devil's food cake has a unique light and moist texture, which sets it
apart from other chocolate cakes. The recipe calls for quite a bit of
baking soda, and boiling water instead of milk. Both of these
ingredients contribute to the fluffiness of this confection.
Devil's food cake first appeared in the United States in the early 1900s. It is quite similar to red velvet cake and the names are often interchangeable in some parts of the country. To celebrate National Devil's Food Cake Day, make some divine devil's food cake to have for dessert tonight!
