Devil's Food Cake Recipe

This is my FAVORITE chocolate cake ever!! I have used this recipe for a long time and just love it. It is moist and chocolaty and if I am not careful, I can eat way too much of it :O)

Buttermilk Devil's Food Cake Recipe (adapted from the Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn)
Ingredients:

  • Solid Vegetable Shortening for greasing pans
  • Flour for dusting pans
  • 1 package (18.75 ounces) plain devil's food cake mix (I used Dunkin Hines cake mix from Target for $0.87)
  • 3 tablespoons dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 & 1/3 cup  2%milk (buttermilk was used in original but we were out! LOL)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oli
  • 3 large eggs
Steps:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and dust pans. Set aside.
  2.  Place all ingredients in large mixing bowl and mix on low speed for 1 minute.
  3. Scrape down sides and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides again if needed. The batter should be thick and well blended.
  4. Fill up cake pans half full and smooth out batter until it is even.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes until toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.  (I used two of the 6 inch rounds and it took about 33 minutes for my cakes to be completely cooked.) There was enough batter to make an additional 8inch round so you could make 4 of the 6 inch rounds.
