Ding Dong Cake

I want I could apologize for today’s chocolate insanity, but I’m non sorry. Sometimes you lot only bespeak a piddling comfort nutrient to larn you lot through the day, the week, the month, the year. Am I right?

Growing upwards my mom would purchase us Little Debbie snacks as well as Hostess snacks for our tiffin boxes. We never knew what she would come upwards habitation with, but I ever got a piddling featherbrained when a box of Ding Dongs were inward the cabinet. Tell me you lot shout upwards these treats? Honestly, they tasted only similar HoHo’s but a dissimilar shape.

Two layers or chocolate cake amongst a cream filling, all coated inward chocolate.

Look familiar? Today’s Ding Dong Cake is only that, only….bigger!

How to brand a Ding Dong Cake:
Start past times baking upwards ii 9-inch chocolate cakes. I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe for this, as well as hence fudgy as well as perfect. If you lot conduct to piece of employment amongst a boxed mix, brand certain it’s a rich as well as fudgy version, similar a Devil’s Food cake.
Next you’ll brand the cream filling. It’s a less sweetness buttercream frosting, sometimes called Ermine frosting. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 friend at our onetime church building called it boiled milk frosting. But I intend that sounds gross, as well as hence let’s telephone telephone it cream filling. You’ll foremost seat your mutual frigidity milk as well as flour inward a modest saucepan as well as whisk until the lumps are gone. Heat this upwards until thick, stirring the whole time. You desire to maintain stirring as well as heating until it becomes thick, almost similar pudding. Be patient.
Once your milk mixture is thick, take from oestrus as well as stir inward the vanilla. COOL. Very of import here. You don’t desire this warm as well as melting your butter inward the side past times side step.
In a mixing bowl, cream your butter as well as carbohydrate until lite as well as fluffy, almost four minutes. Slowly add together inward the COOLED milk mixture, beating until it resembles a thick whipped cream or frosting. Don’t endure scared if it initially appears curdled, maintain beating!
Spread this thick layer of cream filling betwixt your ii cooled chocolate cake layers.
Whip upwards some chocolate ganache as well as pour it over the top as well as sides. Allow it set, as well as enjoy.
