Hello from the best cake called … Nana’s Devil Chocolate Cake. This is not my family recipe. Or my own. But this recipe stole the hearts of millions. People on Reddit were obsessed with this chocolate cake. And I started to wonder: Really, is it that good? Let me tell you!

Description of Nanas Devil Chocolate Cake

This cake is super moist, full of the real, homemade coffee, chocolate or in two words that I can describe this cake: Chocolate Heaven. So, if you are a chocoholic this is your recipe. (and you know who you are, don’t hide)

The ingredients are simple but there is no real instruction in the reddit how to make this cake. So, I really wanted to make this recipe for you, my dear readers. And you can try it.

This cake also comes with the chocolate icing or you can use your own best ganache recipe. If you like peanut butter you can add that too. This cake is full of possibilities. So, let’s do it.
