Serves: 10 to 12 servings


  • Parchment paper
         Devil's Food Cake Batter:
    • 1/2 cup butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • Use egg replacer equivalent of 1 large egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 3/4 cup hot strong brewed coffee
    • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
    • 1/2 gal. mint chocolate chip ice cream, softened
    • 10 chocolate wafers, coarsely crushed
            Chocolate Ganache:
      • 1 (4-oz.) semisweet chocolate baking bar, chopped
      • 8 tablespoons whipping cream, divided
      • Garnishes: sweetened whipped cream, thin crème de menthe chocolate mints



          1. Preheat oven to 350º. Grease and flour 3 (8-inch) round cake pans. Line with parchment paper. Prepare Devil's Food Cake Batter, and spoon into pans.
          2. Bake at 350º for 12 to 14 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks, peel off parchment paper, and cool completely (about 1 hour).
          3. Place 1 cake layer in a 9-inch springform pan. Top with one-third of ice cream (about 2 1/3 cups); sprinkle with half of crushed wafers. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining cake layer and ice cream. Freeze 8 to 12 hours.
          4. Remove cake from springform pan, and place on a cake stand or plate. Prepare Chocolate Ganache, and spread over top of ice-cream cake. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Garnish, if desired.
