The Simple Ding Dong Cake is a chocolate cake with a cream filling that is prepared in a pan measuring 13 inches by 9 inches. And you're right, it tastes like a Hostess Ding Dong!

The recipe is best defined as semi-homemade since you'll be using store-bought cake mix and store-bought chocolate fudge frosting. These time-saving techniques make assembling this cake a snap.

This dish is from a church cookbook that was published in the 1980s. It's great that someone wanted to cook their own Hostess Ding Dongs when they were first introduced in 1967. The cake has a flavor somewhat reminiscent of a Ding Dong candy.

Since it uses store-bought shortcuts, putting this cake together couldn't be easier. This recipe starts with a chocolate cake mix as the base (read the back of the box for any additional ingredients that are needed; instructions for making the cake will be followed exactly). Shortening, butter, evaporated milk, vanilla extract and sugar are the components that go into making the cream layer.

The top layer is just a basic box of frosting bought from the store. To achieve the look of a ding dong, use a dark chocolate-based glaze or a dark chocolate-based coating.
