Easy Double-Layer Chocolate Cake Recipe

Sometimes simple is better.

Actually most times, yes?

 

So this post is gonna be simple.

 

This Whoopie Pie Cake was sort of accidental.  Obviously not accidental in intention, but accidental in execution.

See, I was going to make this a super fancy, stack-o-whoopie pies piled up to make a giant gorgeous deconstructed type cake.

 

Unfortunately, ain’t nobody got time for that.

Meaning me.  I ain’t got time for that.

 

So I took the easy route.

It might not be as visually appealing as a giant stack of whoopie pies…I mean not much would…but it is incredibly tasty.

And also, you can actually slice it without holding your breath.

Which is kind of important, because I can only hold my breath for like 7 seconds before I’m certain I will faint.

How to Make a Whoopie Pie Cake With Cake Mix:

Grease 2, 9×13 pans with butter and dust with cocoa powder.

Split the batter evenly between the 2 pans.
(Obviously if you don’t have 2 pans, just bake one at a time.)

This is actually an optional step, but not really 😉

Just heat up some heavy cream to almost boiling and then add in your chocolate chips, stirring until smooth.
