Default Piece o' (chocolate) cake

Okay, you foodies. What's the difference between chocolate cake, devil's food cake, and chocolate fudge cake?

(It's not a riddle, I really want to know.)

Google gives a number of recipes. What would I do without Google

chocolate fudge cake: This recipe is also known as ‘Death by Chocolate’, if it is topped with chocolate ice cream and lashings of whipped cream.

A devil's food cake recipe with cocoa and fudge frosting.

Chocolate cake seems to have no topping.

All delicious, and it is well known that chocolate cake has no caleries. . .

All chocolate cake, which has many forms.
  • Chocolate cake is any cake whose primary flavoring is chocolate. It could come in a number of forms: cocoa powder; bittersweet, semisweet, or dark chocolate, first melted; chocolate chips or other candies; etc. The sort of chocolate will have a powerful effect on the intensity of the cake’s flavor.
  • Devil’s food cake usually has an enrichment to the chocolate (brown sugar, perhaps more chocolate in a different form, maybe some spices).
  • Chocolate fudge cake is not well-defined. I have seen the term used for a chocolate cake with a fudgy filling or icing; or for a cake that is closer to a brownie, with chocolate icing; or for one of those rich cakes made with little flour that has a moist fudgy center.
Which kind do you prefer?

I am not a chocoholic like many I know — I am sort of neutral. If cake is in the offing, I would often prefer a lemon cake, pound cake of some sort, or my mother’s favorite, a mocha loaf cake, usually dusted with powdered sugar.

I do believe you are the first person I’ve met who actually hates chocolate! And living in an area that produces some of the best, too! Contrarian, aren’t you?

Of course! (I don't smoke cigars either (though I did at one time) and am trying hard to limit coffee intake to one cup a day.

Then again... I love cheese (the older the better), most milk products (but not butter), and, of course, beer (many types, anyway). Of course we keep the best of those products to ourselves and don't even bother to export them.

I think a chocolate cake should be medium in texture - a liitle more than a sponge - Dont know about Devils food - Chocolate fudge cake has to be really thick and sticky - really glue you together

And I loathe dairy products except cheese and ice cream. And cream cheese with smoked salmon. But milk makes me gag, from about 2 feet away.

BTW, just got another Dutch cheese, called Delft (with a wrapper decorated like old Delft pottery). Soft, maybe akin to an edam but with a bit more bite. Made a nice sandwich.
