The Blue Grass Cook Book
Compiled by Minnie C. Fox (1904)
DEVIL'S FOOD CAKE
4 ounces of chocolate,
1/2 pint of milk,
1/2 cup of butter,
1 1/2 cups of sugar,
3 cups of flour,
2 teaspoonfuls of baking-powder.
Put chocolate in milk and cook in double-boiler till smooth and thick (about 5 minutes), and stand aside to cool. Beat the butter to a cream, and add gradually the sugar and yolks of eggs; then the cold chocolate mixture, and add the flour, which has been sifted with the baking-powder. Add the well-beaten whites of eggs and flavor with vanilla. Bake in layers and put together with soft icing, to which add chopped figs or nuts.
