This cake is entirely aptly named. It's devilishly delicious! It's one of my partner's favourites, but I try and only make it for him on special occasions because I can't trust myself to be left alone in the house with the finished product - it's just too good! A rich chocolate cake that has a lighter texture than a mud cake but is much fuller in flavour than a sponge. After amalgamating many a recipe I've finally developed my own. Enjoy!
This cake is best eaten fresh and unrefridgerated the day it is made (unless you're in a really hot climate which can prevent the ganache from fully setting and may quickly melt the cream). However, it will keep in the fridge for up to 3-5 days, or can be frozen (use jam, not fresh strawberries, if freezing). The only catch with refridgerating or freezing the cake is that it does change the texture - it looses some of the softness and isn't as light as a result. It's still delicious though and the ganache will set nicely in the fridge too.
Oooh i made something very similar ( http://www.hungryforever.com/devils-food-cake-recipe/ ) a few months ago, and it was delicious! Loved seeing how you had a different take on it . I’m definitely making this! thanks for sharing! - 09 Jan 2015
