    Can substitute brandy for kirschwasser, and the book’s “Chocolate devil’s food cake” for the “Hot chocolate cake” called for in this recipe.

Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    Fantastic. I used chocolate devil’s food cake, which is very moist and delicious. This was a perfect birthday cake.
