How to Make "Lil" Gob Cake - Cass's

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...
