National Devil's Food Cake Day
If you're in the mood for a sweet treat to eat, go grab your fork! May 19 is National Devil's Food Cake Day, an annual food "holiday" that celebrates the rich and moist chocolaty dessert Americans love to eat - devil's food cake. Today, you really can have your cake and eat it, too!
Typically made with cocoa instead of chocolate, devil's food cake is an airy cake that is usually topped with a decadent chocolate frosting. Enjoyed since the late 1800s, some believe the sinfully delicious cake got its unusual name after the popular Angel Food Cake was "invented."
Why not indulge in a little chocolate delight, by whipping up one or two of the recipes listed below in honor of National Devil's Food Cake Day?
