National Devil’s Food Cake Day

The triumph of chocolate over the rest of the sweets is celebrated on May 19, when National Devil’s Food Cake Day comes and Americans freely confess their love for sweets. Their chocolate cake is unusual. It is made using a special method to ensure the taste nuances meet the standards. Not easy, but the result is worth the effort!

The History

The first recipe was published in 1898 in the Indiana State Regular Edition. Sarah Rorer included the dish in her own cookbook, published in 1902. The legend says a restaurant patron asked the cook for the cake’s recipe. She got it, but also received a bill for $100! At the end of the 1970s, the cake was made much less: Americans fear content of artificial dyes.

Interesting Facts

Milk is replaced with water, and cocoa beans are replaced with coffee. It gives airiness and a unique taste that sets off the predominant ingredient.

  1. One version states the cake got its name for being the complete opposite of the Angel’s Food dessert.
  2. The main rule for variations in the recipe is a rejection of nuts.
  3. Add a cup of fragrant coffee and a glass of cold milk!

The name tempts one to try a piece of it. It is a justified temptation. On this holiday, give in, forgetting about your nutritionist’s instructions. The treat is a consolation after a bad day, an encouragement for good work, and an opportunity for pleasure for no reason. Appreciate its richness of taste. You will not regret it!
