How To Make "lil" gob cake - cass's

  • 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.

    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...
