Gob (Whoopie pie) Cake

Chocolate filled cake with creamy frosting; a large Gob Cake or Whoopie Pie

Gobs (or whoopie pies) are chocolate cake-like circles held together by a light and creamy filling. To save some time, make it into one big cake. Then when you slice it, you have square gobs instead of circle ones! All the yummy goodness, without all the work.

Ingredients are as follows:

2 C sugar
1 3/4 C flour
1 C cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup boiling water

(The ingredients for the filling are different, but I assure you, it's one of the best fillings you'll try!)

1 C milk
5 Tbsp flour
1/2 C butter, room temperature 
1/2 C shortening
1/4 tsp salt
2 C powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease and flour two cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 


Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla.


Stir until the dry and wet ingredients are mixed together. 


Pour in the boiling water and stir until completely incorporated.


Pour evenly into prepared pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.


While the cakes are baking, put the milk and flour in a small saucepan and stir together.


Place over medium heat and continue to stir until it starts to thicken and then forms a ball; set aside to cool to room temperature.


Cream together the butter, shortening and salt.

  
Add the flour mixture and continue mixing for about ten minutes.             (I know that sounds like a long time, however it will result in a thick mixture with no lumps.)

  
Slowly add in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix another two minutes or until you get a creamy consistency.


Flip one cake out onto a serving tray (or table)  and frost with filling. 


 Then place the second cake on top of the filling.


Slice, serve and enjoy!

  21. Who says we can't have a big whoopie cake, now we can have bigger pieces. Nice

  22. When I got married 37 years ago, my sister-in-law gave me arecipe for chocolate creme filled cookies. They are just like the whoopie pies. I found that they are even better when they are put in the refrigerator and chilled. But a large one instead of individual ones sounds even better. Will for sure try.

Thanks for coming over to Dining With Debbie:) Hope to see you there often.
