Serves:

8 - 9 depends how big you cut it

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
2 c
sugar
2 c
hot water
1 c
baking cocoa
2 tsp
baking powder
2 tsp
baking soda
2
eggs
1 stick
butter

GOB FILLING

5 Tbsp
flour
1 c
milk
1 c
sugar
1 c
butter, softened
1 tsp
vanilla

NOTE: PREPERATION TIME FOR THE FILLING IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE CAKE PREPERATION TIME, JUST ADD ANOTHER 15 - 20 MINUTES FOR THE FILLING,

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

Grease two 8 inch baking pans. I used cooking spray.
2
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the first six ingredients.
3
Add the eggs, butter and mix well.
4
Pour into prepared baking pans.

Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the middle comes out clean.

** note: I baked mine individually. I see no problem with baking them both at the same time.
5
Cool on racks.
6
Make Gob filling:

In a small saucepan; combine the milk and flour.
7
On medium heat, cook until thickened; it will be very thick. Set aside to cool. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the cooled flour/milk mixture.
8
Cream the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy, scraping the bowl once or twice to make sure it’s all mixed well.
9
Add the cooled flour/milk/vanilla mixture. Make sure it’s not the least bit warm.

Whip it on medium-high until the mixture resembled whipped cream.
10
I take one cake, place it on serving platter rounded side down. It should come out of the pan with no problems. It's a pretty easy cake to work with.
11
Spread the filling evenly on the bottom cake.

Now, carefully Place the other cake, rounded side up this time.

I then sprinkle the top wit confectioners' sugar. You don't have to. It's entirely up to you.. I just think it's pretty with the sugar.
12
You could make this cake with only one cake. Cutting it in half. If so, just halve the cake recipe.


This is a very moist and delicious cake..we sure enjoy it. It is also great without the filling..I hope you'll give it a try...
