Tasty Tuesday: Ho Ho Cake

I'm a sucker for packaged, artificial, overly processed chocolate sometimes. Especially when it comes in the form of a little debbie cake or a hostess cupcake. Unfortunately, I finish eating one and then I feel like I ate wax and plastic. Icckkkkk. So, if you have similar cravings, please go make these today. (right now! Goooo!)

Ho Ho Cake

1 Devils Food cake mix (and ingredients needed to make the cake)
5 T Flour
1 1/4 C. Milk
1 C. Sugar
1/2 C. Shortening
1/2 C. Butter
1 tsp Vanilla
3 oz Semi sweet chocolate
1 tsp Vanilla
2 1/2 T. Hot water
1/2 C. Butter
3 C. Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake as instructed on box. Pour into a 16×11” pan and bake 20 minutes. Cool Completely. Heat flour and milk in saucepan. Cook until thick and then cool completely. Beat sugar, butter, shortening, and vanilla for 4-5 minutes or until creamy. Add cooled flour mixture and beat until smooth. Use it to frost the cooled cake and refrigerate for 1 hour or more. Melt chocolate. Mix together chocolate, vanilla, water, butter, and powdered sugar until smooth. Spread on white icing layer. Keep refrigerated.


  1. Hey Kelsers, Love this new blog. Any ideas how to print your recipes like we used to on your old blog?

  2. That looks yummy! But looking at that picture is not good motivation to stick to my no sugar diet!
