First Day of Fall Equals Cake

Perhaps you're wondering how the first day of fall automatically equates with cake? Well, I'd be happy to tell you.


Despite the fact that I'm now middle aged and would be horrified at even the mention of a bikini, out of habit I've always dreaded fattening food in summer. It is sort of a habitual guilt left over from my beach babe days. So, the first day of fall is a day of freedom for me and I like to indulge in a sinfully delicious home baked cake.


Fall Spiced Devil's Food Cake with Chocolate Ganache



The first slice of heaven


This cake is very moist, super rich and absolutely delicious. A hint of cinnamon and nutmeg give the chocolate a cut of spiciness that gives another layer of flavor. In this one, I put a thin coating of my home-made strawberry jam between the layers with more ganache to hold it in place.
