8 - 9 depends how big you cut it
NOTE: PREPERATION TIME FOR THE FILLING IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE CAKE PREPERATION TIME, JUST ADD ANOTHER 15 - 20 MINUTES FOR THE FILLING,
1Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
Grease two 8 inch baking pans. I used cooking spray.
2In a medium mixing bowl, combine the first six ingredients.
3Add the eggs, butter and mix well.
4Pour 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.
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.
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...
