Suzy Q Cake

Trying to decide what cake to make for my friend's birthday.  This is one of my absolute favorites but I'm not sure this will be the one.  But it's so easy, maybe....

What you'll need
Devil's Food cake prepared according to package except use milk instead of water and add about 3/4 C Sour Cream and cooked in a 13x9 cake pan

Jar of Hot Fudge~I like Mrs. Richardson's but any thick hot fudge will work

Whipped Cream

To make the whipped cream

Large container of Whipping Cream
2 t Vanilla extract

Whip it until it's firming up. Add 1 1/2-2 C Powdered Sugar and whip until stiff. Chill the whipped cream a bit if you can.

Cut cake in half, making two layers. Gently lift the top off.  Warm hot fudge in microwave and spread a thin layer on bottom layer.  Spoon the whipped cream in the middle. Put cake back together.  Spread hot fudge over the top of the cake. Chill cake for at least an hour before serving. YUMMY!!!

Cut the cake in half.

Spread the whipped cream

Top with hot fudge
Honestly, I only used a small container of Whipped Cream this time and it was a mistake. The whipped cream should be about double this amount. Still tasted good but I like more whipped cream

Oh my gosh, this looks and sounds so good. Think I'll make it next for my sister's visit. Yummy!

If you want your cake to taste just like Suzy Q's, make your filling from cream cheese, marshmallow fluff and Cool Whip. Also add devil's food pudding mix to your cake mix. It will taste great. My grandkids and co-workers can't get enough of this cake. I just cut it into little rectangle squares.
