As a child my favorite Aunt Virginia was known for this fudge-like rich and moist devil's food. This makes a large cake and goes a long way. Very good frosted with cool whip and instant pudding mixture or any favorite type. Dusted with powdered sugar through a doily lace pattern then adding real whipped cream on top is also very popular. You will never buy a cake mix again after making this delicious cake.

How to Make Devil's Food Quick'n Easy - Super Moist - Aunt Virginia Used to Make

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease and flour desired pans: 2 x 10" cake or 1 large jelly roll or sheet cake pan 13" x 18".
  2. The recipe passed down states bake at 350 degrees. There is no time stated but I have found the time varies from 25-30 minutes. The toothpick test is always needed to be absolutely sure.
  3. Cool on wire rack. Serve as desired whether frosted, as an ice cream cake roll or slightly warm and plain - Enjoy!
  4. COOL WHIP TOPPING: 2 boxes (3.5 oz) instant pudding
    3 cups milk
    16 oz. Whipped Topping
    Mix puddings with milk and fold thawed whipped topping into the pudding. Frost your sheet cake and keep refrigerated including any leftovers. Best if made in advance of serving.
