I’m making my return to Tuesdays with Dorie! woohoo!
This week’s recipe was chosen by the lovely Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater. She chose the Devil’s Food White Out Cake which is actually the cover picture of Dorie’s book. I’d never paid attention to the picture until Stephanie chose the recipe and after that, it was all I could think about.
I had a few problems while making it. See, when I went to flip the cakes onto a cooling rack and disaster struck.
One was perfectly fine, the other fell apart almost completely. But instead of throwing it out, which is my usual method of dealing with things, I took a biscuit cutter to them and came out with 4 tiny cakes. We were supposed to cut the layers into 4 thin ones but I decided not to risk it after the first disaster.
This cake was truly amazing. I am not a chocolate cake fan but holy geez best cake ever. The frosting was light and marshmallow-y and the crumbled cake on top was the perfect finishing touch.
If you want the recipe which I know you do, head over the Stephanie’s blog and try not to break your cake layers like some people did.
