Ding Dong Cake

1 box pudding type cake mix
1 c. milk
4 tbsp. flour
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
  • Bake cake according to directions on box, using a 9"x13" pan.
  • Combine milk and flour.
  • Cook until thick, then cool.
  • Mix butter and shortening for 4 minutes.
  • Add sugar and vanilla and mix 4 more minutes.
  • Add flour mixture and beat 4 minutes more.
  • After it cools, slice in half horizontally and spread with filling.
  • Replace top layer of cake or you could bake it in a bundt pan and then slice in half horizontally and scoop some of the cake out of middle. I've seen it both ways.
  • Cover with icing. (recipe below)
1 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. milk
2 tbsp. cocoa
Add powdered sugar until thick

  1. Oh my gosh! My character LOVES Ding Dongs and is very upset Hostess went out of business! So happy to have found your Ding Dong cake! Is it kind of like Ding Dongs? May I reference it/you in my next book, Daylight Dawns on Delilah Dunnfield? You can write to me through my website. :) Victoria
