This cake was my Grandpa’s favorite.  I’ve always wanted to make it and now I have the recipe (and so do you;) *Looking at this recipe I realize it’s incomplete.  I will ask my nane to clarify and update*


3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2tsp cold water
1 1/2 cup flour
1tsp Baking powder

Cream Filling:

1 pt milk
2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg



Beat eggs, sugar and water thoroughly.  Sift the flour and baking powder.  Stir in egg mixture.  Bake in 2 layers at  350 degrees.  While still warm split and fill with cream filling,.


Filling: Cook in double boiler & while hot, stir in butter size of an egg.  Add flavoring and spread between layers.  Sprinkle top of cake with powdered sugar just before serving.


So After discussing with Nane, she told me the secret:  The Easy Way

What’s the easy way?

1pkg yellow cake mix

2 large packages of pudding (NOT the instant kind)

Make the cake according to directions using two 9″ round pans.  After cooked, while still hot slice each cake in half and let cool on a rack.

Make the pudding according to directions.  While it’s still soft, but not runny, layer the pudding in between the cake layers.

Coat entire cake with powdered sugar.  Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
