Devil’s Food cake

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • cup cake flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cup low fat buttermilk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup strong brewed coffee
  • cup semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 ½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

marshmallow meringue frosting

  • 4 egg whites
  • teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 ½ (4.4 ounce) Hershey bars, broken into 24 pieces
  • 3 graham crackers, cut into 24 pieces


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Place all the ingredients for the cupcake batter into a large mixing bowl and whisk together until fully combined.
  • Line a cupcake tin with liners and fill each about ½ way full.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean when inserted into the center.
  • Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.
  • Place the egg whites and cream of tartar in an electric stand mixer fixed with a whisk attachment.
  • Beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until light and frothy.
  • Begin adding the sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, until fully incorporated.
  • Add the corn syrup and vanilla and beat until the mixture has become glossy and fluffy and stiff peaks form, about 8 minutes. (if you think the mixture looks glossy but soupy, keep beating!)
  • Scoop the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a round tip and pipe over the cooled cupcakes.


  • *Note: If you don’t want to beat the frosting for a long time, you can shorten the whipping time by dissolving the sugar and lightly whipped egg whites over a double boiler before adding the mixture to a stand mixer.
