Make a packaged devil's food cake, poke some holes in it, and smother the hot cake with a decadent, buttery syrup for a delicious treat.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 115g butter
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Extra time:30min  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

  1. Prepare batter and bake cake as directed on the package.
  2. About 5 minutes before the cake is finished baking, melt the butter in a large saucepan to allow for foaming, then stir in the evaporated milk. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat then stir in the corn syrup and sugar. Bring back to a boil, stir to dissolve sugar, turn off the heat, and add the baking soda. Stir continuously until the baking soda is mixed in and stops foaming, about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the cake from the oven, and poke holes in the hot cake with a butter knife or the end of a wooden spoon. Pour the syrup over the hot cake, and let cool before cutting.
