How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three nine-inch round cake pans or spray with Pam.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix, instant pudding, eggs, oil and water. Mix with mixer until well blended. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-22 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool cakes completely on a wire rack before removing from pan.
  • To make the filling, whisk together the flour and milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Once the flour and milk mixture has cooled, beat the 1/2 cup shortening, butter, sugar and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the milk mixture and continue to beat for 4 more minutes. Spread evenly between cake layers, except for top of cake.
  • Combine the chocolate chips, 1/4 cup shortening, corn syrup and water in the top of a double boiler. Heat, stirring frequently until melted and smooth. Pour warm glaze over the top of the cake and smooth over the sides. Refrigerate until serving.
