Yield:
1 to 2 - layer 10x15 inch cake

Ingredients

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix

  • 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 ½ cups milk

  • 4 eggs

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ cup shortening

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch pan. Line a second 10x15 inch pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, 1/4 cup oil, 1 1/2 cup milk and 4 eggs. Beat 4 minutes on high speed. Divide batter into the two 10x15 inch pans.

  3. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

  4. To make the filling: In a large bowl, combine 2 cups confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup milk, shortening, butter, vanilla and flour. Beat on high speed for 5 minutes, or until it achieves the consistency of whipped cream.

  5. Spread filling over the layer in the greased pan. Loosen the sides of the other layer by running a knife around the edge between the cake and the pan. Flip the cake onto the frosted layer. Remove the pan and parchment paper from the top layer and serve.
