Devil's Food Yuck!

My favorite cake is Devil's Food Cake with pecan frosting. It is just that much more decadent than regular German Chocolate. I like to think that they named Devil's Food because it was so dark and delicious that only the Devil could have made it to tempt you. Likewise Angel Food cake is light and tastes like the angels made it. And they are opposites yadda, yadda, yadda.

Well the cupcakes I made the other must really have been touched by the devil because they tasted like the wages of sin. Bland, chewy and plain old yucky. The frosting was the best part and it wasn't very good.

If I am going to go to the work of making a cake from sctatch it had better taste good. Otherwise I will just open a box full of partially hydrogenated death, at least it will taste good.

I am going to have to rethink my collection of different editions of the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook since it failed me so completely.

So please, if you have a recipe for a good homemade devil's food cake please send me the recipe. My birthday is coming up and I want the cake to be yummy.
