In a very large bowl, mix together all ingredients. The batter will be thick. Pour batter into cake pan of choice.
For cooking time, use the cooking times on the back of the devil’s food cake box as a guide. Do the toothpick check after the suggested cooking time; if it’s not done check on it every 5 mins after that.
Cool and frost with buttercream (recipe below).
Seriously, the BEST Vanilla Buttercream
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter until smooth and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes.
With mixer on low speed, add 6 cups sugar, whipping cream, and vanilla; mix until light and fluffy.
If necessary, gradually add more powdered sugar to reach desired consistency.
I like to make the cake the day before serving. I refrigerate the cake after making it and serve it at room temperature.Store cake in an air-tight container. Can store cake in the refrigerator or on the counter.
