Yogurt Devil’s Food Cake

Devil’s food cake is a rich moist dark chocolate and is considered as counter to angel’s food cake. it’s the presence of more chocolate with dark fudgy chocolate frosting that differs it from the regular chocolate cake.

We are almost at the end of ABC Bake around the world and it just seems like we started only a few days back. I know that the name of my chocolate cake sounds weird but I had to come up with this name to make it compatible with my letter Y.

I know it doesn’t make any sense but still, I had to do it as I already baked my cakes ad in no mood to bake any more cakes. My family is now completely fed u of cakes and asked me to bake nothing at all for next two months.

However, they loved this chocolate cake ad went crazy for it. I sent the cake to some of my friends and they all immediately called me to tell how awesome the cake was.

    That is such a delicious looking cake Sapana. My family has also made me promise I won't bake breads for the rest of the year. How to make them understand the travails of a food blogger. But with cakes like yours, you can surely make them come around to your point of view

  2. How gorgeous this cake looks, feel like licking that frosting. Very pretty cake to bake for a celebration.

  3. I tried a similar one in slow cooker last time. This one with that chocolate frosting is super delicious. Got to bake this again.
