This recipe was shared by a friend, Jane, so many years ago. I like to make it at Christmas for an easy and impressive dessert for work potlucks. Be creative with your fillings. You can use fruit, ice cream, pudding, whatever you like.

How to Make Ring Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. In saucepan over med/high heat, stir vigorously the water, margarine and flour until it forms a ball.
  2. Take away from heat.
  3. Add 4 eggs. Mix well with electric beater until smooth. (will be gooey)
  4. Grease a cookie sheet. Drop by spoonfuls to shape a wreath or heart shape. Make sure all touch. I make it about 12" round, with about 12 round spoon drops of the mixture (all touching each other)
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
  6. Cool. Slice off top. It's easier to use a serrated bread knife to slice the top half off the ring. Try to keep it in tact as one circular piece. if not, don't worry, just like a puzzle to match the top and bottom back together.
  7. Pull out any soft dough.
  8. Fill with pudding mixture (you can fill it with just about anything, be creative, even ice cream)
    (I've used 1/2 cup milk, 1 small pkg. pudding, 1 tsp. vanilla and 3/4 cup sour cream as a filling which is ingredients listed above).
  9. Put the top back on, over the filling.
  10. Take a can of cherry pie filling and spoon over the ring, letting the cherries and cherry gel fall as it may.
