6Make Gob filling:

In a small saucepan; combine the milk and flour.

7On 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.

8Cream the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy, scraping the bowl once or twice to make sure it’s all mixed well.

9Add 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.

10I 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.

Step 11 Direction Photo

11Spread 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.

12You 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...
