How to prepare: Devil’s food after eight
To make Devil’s food after eight, start preparing the cocoa cake bases. Sift the cocoa into a bowl and add the hot water, stir and let it cool. Mix the milk.
In the planetary mixer, with a leaf hook, work the butter until it is soft. Add the sugar and work by increasing the speed. Add the vanilla and eggs, a little at a time, until the mixture is well whipped. In a bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and starch. With the planetary mixer on low speed, add the flour and the cocoa mixture to the dough, alternating them, starting and ending with the flours.
Preheat the oven to 175 ° C. Grease three 20 cm diameter cake molds and line the bottom with parchment paper. Divide the dough equally between the three molds and bake in the oven for about 35-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes. Remove the chocolate cake bases from the molds and let them cool upside down on a wire rack.
In the meantime, prepare the mint frosting: in a planetary mixer, equipped with a leaf hook, work the cheese and mascarpone until the mixture is smooth. Add the mint syrup and icing sugar and mix. Gradually add the fresh cream and whip with a whisk until you get a smooth, shiny and easily spreadable cream.
Before composing the cake, trim the chocolate cakes to obtain discs of equal thickness and diameter. Arrange the base on a serving dish and cover it with three tablespoons of frosting, leveling it evenly. For a precise result, use an ice cream portioner to fill each layer with the same amount of cream.
Cover with the second disc and repeat the operation until you finish with the layers. Coat the cake with the remaining frosting using a spatula. For an optimal result, initially coat the cake with a minimum amount of frosting, in order to fill in the spaces and any inaccuracies with the following passes. If you have one, you could help yourself with a turntable or “lazy Susan”.
Once the whole cake is covered, you can decorate the surface as you like, for example with small cubes of cake, made from cutouts, or obtaining the marbled effect with a little mint syrup. Your Devil’s food aftereight is ready to be served!
