I have just been watching celebrity bake off for caner research were the celebs made Paul Hollywood's devil's cake. It looks absolutely delicious but not sure what makes it different to a ordinary chocolate cake. Does anyone know?
If in doubt, wikipedia! "Devil's food cake is a moist, airy, rich chocolate layer cake. It is considered a counterpart to the white or yellow angel food cake. Because of differing recipes and changing ingredient availability over the course of the 20th century, it is difficult to precisely qualify what distinguishes devil's food from the more standard chocolate cake, though it traditionally has more chocolate than a regular chocolate cake, making it darker. The cake is usually paired with a rich chocolate frosting."
