What are the ingredients that differentiate a devil's food cake from a chocolate cake? Thanks. --iVillager prism74
In terms of recipes, there is more cocoa and fat in a devil's food cake, which creates a richer, more sinful cake. But other than that there isn't much to distinguish a devil's food cake from a rich chocolate cake. There is the red devil's food cake, but the only difference is that it calls for red food coloring.
