Egg less Devil's Food Cake
A Devil's Food Cake is an American classic.. Devil’s food cake is supposed to be darker ,less sweet and generally more moist and airy than other kinds of chocolate cake. The secret behind this moist, rich chocolate cake is mixing the cocoa powder and no melted baking chocolate. Sometimes there’s hot water, brewed coffee added. The lack of melted chocolate and the addition of coffee is typically what distinguishes a Devil's food cake from a chocolate cake

Place one layer of the cake on a cake stand. Add some ganache and spread it on the layer.
Put the other piece cake on top of the frosted cake.

Garnish with chocolate shaves and chocolate chips.
Just refrigerate the cake for an hour so that the ganache sets.
