Double Goodness Devil's Food Cake

Nothing better than to have an indulgence rich chocolate cake on the table right now. Devil's food cake, my special whipped of the day. It's been ages since my last baked one. After cutting down my work force recently, I have more time spending in my kitchen again and of coz, with my family too. Pretty excited about it especially on the go trying out some of my new baking toys. I've been travelling a lot as well with hubby. We were trying to get away from town and the city life......staying away from all noises. By just mentioning about the trip, I am too excited to share with you guys that hubby & I both so lucky to have over heard the sound of the wild tigers roar for a few times in between the several hours nearby our camp site on our 3rd trip there at Sg Madek, Kahang. The tigers were just about 500m-1km away from our camp site, as predicted. They were enjoying their meal...a wild boar (as we over heard they caught their prey that day). The whole forest was in peace & quiet that night. Not a single sound made by any other animals around.>o< Can you imagine the situation ? haha....
