1/2 tsp nutmeg,
1 tsp orange zest,

This moist, airy, rich chocolate dessert first appeared in 1902 in the book “Mrs. Rorer’s New Cook Book” by Sarah Rohrer. Since then this cake has captured hearts across America. I, in turn, changed the recipe slightly by adding a few spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne pepper and a teaspoon of orange zest. I also changed my mind about doing a one-piece cake, and made cupcakes instead.
16. Believe me, these cupcakes are divine! The spices are the highlight, made brighter and more expressive by the taste of chocolate, and the orange peel added a citrus, but at the same time very sweet note. After tasting a piece of this soft, slightly moist, delicious chocolate cupcake I suddenly realized why this cake is called the Devil. So devilishly seductive, to resist such a temptation is simply impossible, even at two o’clock in the morning. These cupcakes have made it to the top of my list of favorite desserts.
