This chocolate delight was one I made for my son-in-law’s birthday when he first joined our family many years ago. I lovingly refer to this as my “Deborah Senter” cake.
Deborah is an old friend and a fabulous cook. She often made this cake to bring to a church potluck and everyone gravitated to it, drooling and frothing at the mouth.
The question that my husband recently posed was why the name? This cake looks nothing like a Twinkie!
No idea where the name originated but I’m thinking it’s more like a ho ho (or is it a ding dong?)
This time I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to take the time to make three layers. Instead, I used two 9×13 pans and made it a two-layer concoction.
