Morning ladies (and gents)

I have just come back froma weekend in Seville. As usual it was
gorgeous. We had a great time. During the 6 hour drive back, I
"suddenly" realized that I have my DD3 birthday party this coming
Friday, and there will be a gazillion kiddies running around my house.
Not a problem. However, I also realized that I have no cake mix. Yes,
I can get Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines cake mixes here in Madrid
(expensive but hey).  For many years now my 3 girls have claimed that
a birthday is not complete without a devil's food cake. So what do I
do this year??? I will try and order some from the shop and hope for
delivery before Friday. But if not, guess I=A1ll have to make it from
scratch. Anyone out there have a fool proof, absolutely delicious, and
mega-moist recipe for devil's food cake?

Please?

Thanks

This is officially called "Cocoa Brownies" but might do the trick. I used to
bake it for little girl birthday parties in a heart-shaped tin and cover
with pink icing.

1/2 cup butter (100 grams)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs beaten with 3 Tbsp cold water
1 cup + 2 Tbsp flour + 1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup Dutch cocoa
1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract

Cream butter with sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients
together and mix into butter mixture until smooth. (You may add 1/2 cup
chopped nuts.) Bake about 25 minutes in 350 (180 C) degree oven.
This recipe can be doubled with no problem.

Icing:
3 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp strong coffee (or use milk)
1 Tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp Dutch cocoa
icing sugar (powdered sugar)
Mix butter, coffee, vanilla and cocoa. Add icing sugar until it is thick and
spreads well. Spread on cooled cake.

if you dont have a heart shaped tin...
make two cakes, one in a square tin, one in a round tin.
cut the round cake in half, place each half on adjoining
sides of the square and you've got a heart.

This one is fast...Youcan mix it in the pan you bake it in but I mix it all
in a bowl as I
think it is much easier !

Wacky Chocolate Cake  ( think it is Wacky because it has no eggs  but has
vinegar)
Mix together:
3 C flour
2 C sugar
6 Tbs Cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
 Mix together and then add to dry ingredients:
3/4 C salad oil
2 Tbs vinegar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 C. water
Mix all well and pour into a Pam sprayed 9 x 13 pan.
Bake 30 -35 min at 375 degrees.

Frost with Fudge Frosting:
Beat 1/2 cup unsalted butter and 3 Tbs cocoa powder ( unsweetened )
Add 1 1/2  C sifted 10 X sugar, 2 to 3 Tbs milk and 1 tsp vanilla.
Frost cake and then put in fridge to firm up frosting.
