- Total Time: Approx. 55 min
- Yield: 1 Cake
- Serves: 16 (layered cake)
1 (18 ¼ oz) package devil's food cake mix
2 tbsp cake flour
1 cup finely ground Almond ROCA®
½ cup water
½ cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
chocolate frosting, store bought or your favorite recipe
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease 2 9-inch round cake pans.
Dust with flour and tap out the excess; set pans aside.
Place the cake mix, cake flour, half of the finely ground Almond ROCA®, water, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl.
Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute.
Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
On medium low speed, continue to blend for 2-3 minutes more.
The batter will be very thick and should look well combined.
Pour batter into prepared pans and smooth it out.
Bake for 27-32 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean)
Allow to cool in the pans on a wire rack for 20 minutes.
Now is the time to start preparing your frosting.
Run a knife along the edges on the cakes pans and carefully remove cake by inverting it; allow to cool for 20 minutes more on the wire rack right side up.
When the cake layers are completely cool, cut layers in half and frost.
- Sprinkle the top with the remaining finely ground Almond ROCA®
