Steps:

  • For cake:

  • For buttercream frosting:
  • Stir 8 ounces chocolate in top of double boiler set over simmering water until smooth. Cool until barely lukewarm but still pourable. Mix cocoa powder and 7 tablespoons water in heavy small saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until smooth and thick but still pourable, adding more water by teaspoonfuls if necessary. Cool.
  • Beat butter, 1/3 cup powdered sugar, and orange peel in large bowl to blend. Add melted chocolate, vanilla, and salt; beat until smooth. Beat in cocoa mixture. Gradually add remaining 3 2/3 cups powdered sugar and beat until frosting is smooth. Mix in Grand Marnier.
  • Place 1 cake layer on platter. Spread 1 1/2 cups frosting over top of cake. Top with second cake layer. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake, swirling decoratively. Mound chocolate curls in center of cake. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover with cake dome and refrigerate. Let cake stand at room temperature 2 hours before serving.)

DEVIL'S FOOD CAKE I



Devil's Food Cake I image

This is an old-fashioned, but easy-to-make devil's food cake recipe. Pound cake like texture and sinfully chocolately. This is from an old Philadelphia Bakery. Great when frosted with Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting.

Provided by Debra Steward

Categories     Desserts     Cakes     Sheet Cake Recipes

Yield 24

Number Of Ingredients 10

½ cup butter
3 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup water
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour one 9x13 inch pan or two 9 inch round pans.
  • In a small pan melt the butter or margarine with the unsweetened chocolate. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Cream together the sugar and the eggs until light in color. Add the chocolate mixture to the eggs and temper mixture by beating well (so you don't end up with scrambled eggs!) Add 1 cup boiled water (still warm) and blend well. Mixture will be very liquid.
  • Mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add this mixture to the chocolate mixture and blend well.
  • Mix together the vinegar and the milk and stir into the chocolate batter. Pour into prepared pan(s).
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cake divides well for filling with mousse, or ganache, or black forest fillings. The best clue to this cake being nearly done is that you will start to smell the aroma of chocolate filling your house!

THE ULTIMATE DEVIL'S FOOD CAKE



The Ultimate Devil's Food Cake image

Not for the faint of heart, our version of devil's food cake is infused with melted chocolate (in addition to the usual cocoa powder) and sour cream to create a richer chocolate flavor and help it stay moist. Get our step-by-step guide here.

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Dessert & Treats Recipes     Cake Recipes

Number Of Ingredients 13

3 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pans
1 cup boiling water
3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped (3/4 cup)
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
2 cups packed light-brown sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
6 1/4 cups Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter two 9-inch round cake pans. Line bottoms with parchment rounds; butter parchment. Stir together boiling water, cocoa, and chocolate in a bowl. Let cool 10 minutes. Whisk together flour, baking powder and soda, and salt in another bowl.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat butter with sugar on medium-high until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, scraping down sides of bowl. Beat in vanilla, then chocolate mixture. Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture in two additions, alternating with sour cream, until just combined.
  • Divide batter evenly between prepared pans, smoothing tops with an offset spatula. Bake until a tester inserted in centers comes out with moist crumbs attached, 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Let cakes cool in pans on a wire rack 20 minutes. Turn out onto rack, top-sides up; let cool completely. With a serrated knife, trim tops of cakes so they're level.
  • Line the edges of a cake stand or plate with strips of parchment. Place one cake layer on stand, trimmed-side up, and spread 1 1/2 cups buttercream evenly over top. Top with remaining cake layer, trimmed-side down.
  • Spread a thin layer of buttercream over top and sides. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes (this ensures a crumb-free finish). Spread remaining frosting evenly over top and sides. Cake can be stored in refrigerator up to 1 day; bring to room temperature before serving.

DEVIL'S FOOD CAKE WITH BLACK PEPPER BUTTERCREAM



Devil's Food Cake With Black Pepper Buttercream image

Like all the best devil's food cakes, this six-layer beauty has a deeply fudgy flavor and a light and feathery texture. In between the tender cake layers, a black pepper and vanilla buttercream creates a soft and creamy contrast to the dense fudge frosting on the top and sides. With six layers and two frostings, this cake is definitely a project, but one well worth making if you want to impress. And you can make it in stages. The frostings can be made up to a week ahead and stored in the refrigerator. Bring them to room temperature and briefly beat with an electric mixer before assembling the cake. The cake layers themselves can be baked a day ahead. Store them, well-wrapped, at room temperature.

Categories     project, dessert

Time 2h30m

Yield 10 servings

Number Of Ingredients 22

10 tablespoons/140 grams unsalted butter, softened, more for greasing pans
2/3 cup/70 grams unsweetened natural (not Dutch-processed) cocoa powder, more for pans
3/4 cup/180 milliliters whole milk
2 cups/200 grams cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons/10 grams baking soda
1/2 teaspoon/3 grams baking powder
1/2 teaspoon/3 grams kosher salt, more as needed
1 3/4 cups/350 grams granulated sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons/10 milliliters vanilla extract
5 large egg whites
1 cup/200 grams granulated sugar
Large pinch kosher salt
3 sticks plus 2 tablespoons/365 grams unsalted butter, softened
1 vanilla bean pod, split lengthwise, seeds scraped
1 teaspoon/5 grams coarsely ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups/300 grams granulated sugar
1 cup/240 milliliters heavy cream
Pinch kosher salt
6 ounces/170 grams unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
8 tablespoons/112 grams unsalted butter, diced
2 teaspoons/10 milliliters vanilla extract

Steps:

  • Make the cake: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 3 8-inch round baking pans, line the bottoms of each with a round of parchment paper and grease the paper. Use a little cocoa powder to coat the insides of the pans, rotating pans so the cocoa comes up the sides, then tap out excess.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together cocoa powder and 2/3 cup boiling water. Whisk in milk. In a separate bowl, whisk together cake flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs 1 at a time, until incorporated. Beat in vanilla. With the mixer running on low speed, beat in a third of the dry ingredients, followed by half the cocoa mixture. Add remaining portions, alternating between two mixtures. Beat until smooth.
  • Divide batter evenly among prepared pans. Bake until the centers of the cakes are firm to the touch, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool cakes in their pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes; turn them out onto the rack to cool completely. (Peel off parchment paper if it sticks to the cakes.)
  • Make the buttercream: Fill a medium pot halfway with water (or use a double-boiler) and bring to a simmer. In a heatproof bowl that fits over pot, whisk together egg whites, sugar and salt. Cook, whisking constantly, until the sugar dissolves and mixture reaches 140 degrees on a candy or instant-read thermometer, about 5 minutes.
  • Using an electric mixer, whip until completely cooled and thick, about 5 minutes. Beat in butter a little at a time, until the frosting is smooth and spreadable. Beat in vanilla bean seeds and pepper.
  • Using a serrated knife, slice each cake in half horizontally. Place one bottom layer on a large platter or cake stand. Top evenly with a thin layer of buttercream. Repeat, alternating between cake and frosting, ending with a layer of cake. Cover cake loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate while you prepare fudge frosting. (Cake can rest in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.)
  • Make the frosting: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, heavy cream and salt. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sugar completely dissolves, about 5 minutes. Scrape mixture into a bowl. Stir in chocolate, butter and vanilla until smooth. Set bowl over a larger bowl filled with ice. Use a hand mixer or an immersion blender with the whisk attachment to whip until mixture is thick and cool, about 5 minutes. Spread frosting over the top and sides of the cake.

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Dessert & Treats Recipes     Cake Recipes

Time 1h20m

Number Of Ingredients 12

3 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pans
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, plus more for pans
1 cup boiling water
1 cup sour cream
3 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
3/4 teaspoon fine salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 3/4 cups sugar, divided
4 large eggs, plus 5 large egg whites, room temperature, divided
5 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, divided
1 tablespoon corn syrup

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter two 8-inch round cake pans and line with parchment; butter parchment and dust pans with cocoa.
  • Whisk boiling water into cocoa until smooth; whisk in sour cream. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter and 2 1/4 cups sugar on medium-high until fluffy and pale yellow. Beat in whole eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. With mixer on low, add flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with 2 additions cocoa mixture, and beat until combined. Fold in 4 teaspoons vanilla.
  • Divide batter among pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Transfer pans to wire racks and let cool completely. Remove cakes from pans and discard parchment. Trim cakes if desired.
  • In a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a pan of simmering water, whisk together remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar, egg whites, and corn syrup until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; using mixer, beat on high until stiff, fluffy peaks form, about 5 minutes. Fold in remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Transfer a cake layer to a serving plate and top with 1 cup frosting. Stack second cake on top and cover top and sides with remaining frosting.

DEVIL'S FOOD CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE MOUSSE BUTTERCREAM



Devil's Food Cake With Chocolate Mousse Buttercream image

This is a bit of work to make, but the reaction of your guests will be worth it. Three members of my family immediately announced that they too wanted this cake when their birthdays came around. I made the mousse buttercream with a hand mixer and it took FOREVER, so don't make it unless you have a stand mixer.

Categories     Dessert

Time 1h

Yield 12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 21

1/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder, sifted
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup boiling water
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 large eggs
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pinch salt
3 cups cold unsalted butter
10 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted

Steps:

  • Cake:.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cocoa powder, espresso powder, and chocolate.
  • Pour in the boiling water and stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Stir in the vanilla and let cool; then stir in the buttermilk.
  • In another bowl, using an electric mixer set at medium speed, beat the butter and oil together until light and fluffy.
  • Add the sugars and beat until creamy.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt onto a sheet of waxed paper.
  • Add one-third of the flour mixture and beat at low just until combined.
  • Beat in half of the chocolate-buttermilk mixture just until combined.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
  • Beat in another one-third of the remaining flour mixture for no more than a few seconds, just until combined.
  • Add the remaining chocolate-buttermilk mixture, beating just a few seconds.
  • Finally, fold in the remaining one-third of the flour mixture by hand, using a large rubber spatula, just until no streaks of flour remain.
  • Divide the batter between two 9-inch round cake pans that have been greased and lined with parchment.
  • Bake at 350°F 25-30 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Transfer to wire racks and let cool 5-10 minutes.
  • Invert the cakes onto the racks and peel the parchment paper from the layers.
  • Let cool completely before frosting.
  • Halve each cake layer horizontally using a long serrated knife (plain dental floss works for me) for a total of four thin cake layers.
  • Place one layer cut-side up on a serving plate and top with 1 cup of the mousse buttercream, spreading it evenly.
  • Continue stacking the cake, spreading 1 cup of the buttercream in between each layer and placing the layer cut-side down.
  • Frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining buttercream.
  • Chocolate Mousse Buttercream:.
  • Whisk together the eggs, sugar, and cocoa powder in the metal bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Fill a large saute pan or skillet with water and bring to a simmer over mediium-high heat.
  • Place the mixing bowl in the simmering water and whisk the egg mixture constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture is thick, fluffy, and very hot, 3-4 minutes.
  • Use an instant-read thermometer to check the temperature of the mixture -- it should be anywhere between 120-140°F.
  • Remove the bowl from the simmering water and, using the whisk attachment, beat the eggs at medium-high speed until they are tripled in volume and form soft peaks and the bottom of the bowl is completely cool to the touch, about 10 minutes (it took 45 minutes with a hand mixer -- don't try it!).
  • Beat in the vanilla and salt.
  • While the eggs are mixing, unwrap the individual sticks of butter and rewrap them loosely in plastic wrap.
  • Pound the butter 5-6 times with a rolling pin, until it is soft and malleable but still cool.
  • With the mixer speed still on med-high, add the butter 2 T at a time, to the egg mixture, beating in each addition until it is incorporated.
  • Don't panic if it seems liquidy or looks curdled; it will magically emulsify.
  • When the buttercream is smooth and glossy with a subtle brown tint from the cocoa powder, turn off the mixer and carefully fold in the melted chocolate.
