Devils Food Cake

Devils food is usually a moist and delicious chocolate cake. This recipe follows the “new” method espoused in the 1950s for sifting dry, then adding wet ingredients. I have several other devils food cake recipes posted on the site. You can find them by searching, or just browse the “cake” category, although that would probably distract me with all the other lovely options. :-)
