What IS the Devil's Favorite Food, Anyway?

Tonight, we celebrated Grandma4444's 73rd birthday. (She's so wonderful; I really could not ask for a better mother-in-law.) I decided to do something special for her in honor of her big day, so I went all out and actually baked her birthday cake. I thought she'd get a kick out of the "Better Than Sex" cake that I chose.  After all, at her age and widow status, I guessed she'd prefer the cake to the sex, anyway (and she confirmed this, haha.)

As we ate the delicious dessert, I pondered, "What do devils eat, anyway?" (I had shared that the base of the cake was a "devil's food" cake mix.) No one had anything to offer. Besides, they were too busy enjoying my masterpiece. Mr.4444 ate two pieces. Grandma4444 declared it was the best cake she'd ever eaten! (See, I told you she's wonderful.)

After his first piece. Kyle (who rarely eats much dessert) grinned...

"Hey, lemme get some more of that Devil's Sex cake."

So, that's how we started our week.

I hope yours starts with a laugh, too :)

*P.S.  I wanted to just link to the recipe, but I was overwhelmed with variations on the one I made. Email me if you're dying to make the cake, and I'll give you my easy-version. for it to appear on Mrs.4444 Cooks one of these days (when the devil makes me do it!)

Update: You'll find the recipe here.

  12. Just swung over from Matty's to see what this Devil's Sex Cake is all about, and I think I'm in love.

    I'm not exactly what you'd call a marvelous baker, but this looks like something I can make. AND, I have company coming next month, so I'll have to make it for them.

    Thanks for the cute story and the great recipe!
