Devil's Food Cake!

    A delicious chocolate sandwich cake. (yum!)


    1 person made this


    • 1/2 Ib. flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking-powder
    • 3/4 Ib. sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 Ib butter
    • 4 tablespoons sour cream or milk
    • 2 tablespoons hot milk
    • 3 oz. chocolate
    • 2 lightly beaten eggs
    • vanilla pod or essence


    1. Dissolve the chocolate in the hot milk with a piece of vanilla pod.
    2. Sift together the flour, soda, baking-powder, salt and sugar.
    3. Stir in the sour cream and the butter (melted but not hot). Add the milk and chocolate that has been mixed up, after allowing it to cool and having removed the piece of vanilla pod.
    4. Fold in the lightly beaten eggs (and the vanilla essence-this is if the pod isn't available, 1/2 teaspoon). Beat for a few minutes.
    5. Turn out into two greased sandwich- tins (7-8") then bake for 30 minutes in an oven until cooked. (gas mark 4)
    6. sandwich together with chocolate filling and icing on top.
