I love the Deluxe Devil's food cake recipe on the Softasilk cake flour box (and I have tried many recipes).  I frequently make it in an 11 x 15 pan.  1.5 times the recipe is perfect for that size pan.  For a half sheet cake (12 x 18)  doubling it should be perfect.  This has a very deep chocolate flavor, but is not dense.  It is also  easy to make.  For your size pan, I would recommend several heat core nails, and would wrap the outside with bake even strips.  Good luck!


I think it is OK to post it since it available on the internet. 







Source:  Softasilk


Notes:  3  9” layers

1.5 times the recipe for 11 x 15 pan





2 cups sugar (14 oz)

2 sticks (8 ounces) softened butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¾ teaspoon almond extract

2 large eggs

2 ½ cups (8.75 oz, 250 grams) cake flour, sifted if measured by volume

1 cup special dark Hershey’s cocoa

2 teaspoons baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

2 ¼ cups buttermilk room temperature (full fat, not low fat if available)

It is! It's very good for stacking, carving and it's like a signature cake for weddings to.

This is the chocolate recipe I use for every chocolate order :)

The Hersheys recipe is at weddingcakesforyou website
