Today is the Feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. Michael fought against Satan. Gabriel told Mary she would be giving birth to Jesus. Raphael is the archangel who took care of Tobias on his journey. All three are beloved.

I love to serve this cake on Michaelmas day. It is tongue in cheek to the devils theme. This may be a no brainer, but make sure your bowl is microwave safe, and can hold all your ingredients comfortably. You can store this cake at room temperature covered in its pan for up to three days. This cake also freezes wonderfully. It will keep for up to a month, if you ensure that it is wrapped tightly with plastic wrap and then foil.
