Devil's Food Cake

Devil's food cake is a moist, airy, rich type chocolate layer cake. It is considered a counterpart to the white or yellowangel food cake. Because of differing recipes and changing ingredient availability over the course of the twentieth century, it is difficult to precisely qualify what distinguishes Devil's food from the more standard chocolate cake. The traditional Devil's food cake is made with shredded beets much the way a carrot cake is made with carrots. The beets add moisture and sweetness to the cake, helping it to be very rich. The red of the beets slightly colours the cake red and due to the richness of the cake it became known as the Devil's food. The cake is usually paired with a rich chocolate frosting.
