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 sure, it tastes like a Hostess Ding Dong!


Who doesn’t have a soft spot in their heart for a gooey piece of chocolate cake? With a layer of chocolate cake, a layer of cream filling, and a layer of decadent fudge frosting, this Simple Ding Dong Cake takes things to the next level. The recipe is best defined as being semi-homemade since you will be using a cake mix purchased from the shop and a chocolate fudge frosting also purchased from the store. Because of these time-saving techniques, putting together this cake is a breeze.


This dish was taken from a church cookbook that was published in the 1980s. It wasn’t until 1967 that someone came up with the idea of baking Hostess Ding Dongs at home in the shape of a cake, and I think it’s so cool that people wanted to do that. These did not live up to my expectations at all! The cake has a flavor that is quite evocative of a Ding Dong candy.
