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 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.
