Devil's Food Cake


I have to say the cake is absloutley delicious. I am a chocolate person, but even I have to say if you make this make sure you have plenty of people to share this with as it is a really rich cake.
And if you share you wont feel guilty of eating this super moist delicous cake and if you are not a chocolate lover don't even go there.

When I read about the event I remember telling to myself I might fir sure join in.
I watch all her cooking Shows the moment they show in BBC.
If I don't jave the time I record the programme and then watch it later.
There are times when I watch together with my teenage daughter and every time she sees a chocolate dish Nigella Makes , she will ask Mama would you make that etc......
So While I was watching her recent TV show in BBC 2, we both saw her making this and I had promised I will make this for her.
Sarah at Maison Cupcake has started this new event

The theme of this month was , If you are thinking Christmassy, you can look for inspiration in the Christmas chapters in How to Eat, How to be a Domestic Goddess, Feast and of course – Nigella Christmas.

 And I have to say you cant have a party without something chocolarey according to me and this Devils Food Cake.

You want to join in the fun and try to be Nigella of course you cant be her not that may people can be sexy and cook like her ;-) you will find all the details hereHere.
Want to make this cake you can find the recipe here in BBC food only chqnge I made is adding less sugar to the cake batter.

Superb looking cake,i am not a chocolate person but my kids love any thing which has chocolate :)

Sarah, Maison Cupcake said...

It's not called Devil's food cake for nothing is it? This looks truly tempting!

I always watch all of Nigella's shows too, she's truly inspirational. I don't care if it's not her real kitchen anymore, I love all the atmosphere of her cooking virtually in the dark surrounded by fairy lights!!

Thank you so much for taking part in the first Forever Nigella, I hope to see you in future months.
