If you have a chocolate cake craving, definitely whip up the best chocolate cake with cream filling ever. Using boxed cake and canned frosting, you can add a few other ingredients to make a moist, yummy, delicious chocolate cake that will have you craving more.
I have recently gotten on a chocolate cake kick. I don't know what it is. I don't even really like chocolate cake. But in the last few months, I have had a strange craving for chocolate cake. I've been satisifying it with the yummy fudge chocolate cake from the Walmart bakery, but that is a little too expensive to buy as much as my cravings have wanted.
Then there is the most delicious Chocolate Boston Creme pie from xxx bakery in my home town. I only get to eat it when I go home to Abilene, Texas a few times a year. If you are ever there, definitley swing by downtown and pick one up. They are a "little" expensive but totally worth every. single. bite.
When the craving for chocolate cake hit this weekend, I was without a car (thanks to the great Cow Incident), so I decided to play around and try and make my own chocolate cake. Eurika! I think I found the best chcoolate cake with cream filling ever!
Since I'm a lazy baker, I started out with a Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge Supermoist Cake Mix, Instead of adding the required ingredients, I added 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of real butter, and 1 and 1/4 cups of milk.
I mixed that up well and poured it into two 9 Inch Round Layer Cake Pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the center is done.
While the cake was baking, I gathered a small box of Chocolate Instant Pudding and Pie Filling, a small carton of whipped topping, and 1 cup of milk.
In my mixer, I creamed them all together and then refrigerated the cream mixture for about 20 minutes.
After the cake's had cooled, I added one to a plate and poured all but 1 cup of the cream filling to the top of the bottom layer cake. Then I added the top layer of cake to sandwich the cream filling between the two cakes.
To complete the chocolate cake, I took one can of Chocolate Fudge frosting and scraped it into a mixing bowl. Then I added the remaining pudding cream filling and mixed the two together.
I ended up with a pourable frosting that I was able to drip onto the cake. I refrigerated the cake and frosting when done to harden the frosting and keep the cream center yummy.
