There is chocolate cake, and then there is chocolate cake that would make a priest put his fist through a stained glass window. The devils food cake that Kierin Baldwin makes at the Dutch falls squarely into the latter category. Baldwins genius lies not so much in the cakes impeccably moist and fudgy crumb, but in twists like the addition of crunchy cocoa nibs to the cake layers and black pepper to its boiled icing. The latter is equal parts divinity and dark mischief, and utterly worth the sale of your soul. 131 Sullivan Street, 212-677-6200,
