Ingredients for the cake batter:

  • 3 1/4 cups of self-rising flour
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 2 cups of granulated Splenda, or sugar
  • 1 cup of evaporated milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

Instructions for making the vanilla cake:

In a large bowl, add 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of granulated Splenda, or sugar, and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Mix well.


Now, add four large eggs to the mixture. Add one egg at a time while mixing. Add 3 1/4 cups of self-rising flour and 1 cup of evaporated milk while you're continuously mixing the batter.


Grease and flour a 9x13-inch cake pan. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.


Transfer the pan to a 350-degree oven. Bake the cake for about 35 minutes.


Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to completely cool on a wire cooling rack before frosting it.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of Crisco vegetable shortening
  • 2 cups of sugar-free powdered sugar, or regular powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract


You're also going to need the following:


  • 12 chocolate creme sandwich cookies for the top of the cake. (I used Gullon (No Sugar Added) Twins Creme Sandwich Cookies.)

Note:

You can add a layer of cookies to the bottom of the cake pan before you pour the cake batter in. Today I only added a layer of cookies for the cake topping. This cake is extremely rich, just with one layer of cookies added.

Instructions:

In a mixing bowl, add 1/2 cup of butter, 2 tablespoons of Crisco vegetable shortening, and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Beat until the ingredients are combined.


Now, slowly add 2 cups of sugar-free powdered sugar or regular powdered sugar to the creamed butter mixture. Continue to mix, and add 2 tablespoons of evaporated milk.


When the frosting is smooth, stop mixing.


Frost your cake once it has cooled completely. Then pull 12 chocolate creme sandwich cookies apart and position them in neat rolls on top of your cake.


Serve and enjoy!


Happy Holidays, everyone!

She is an animal rescuer, food critic, organic gardener, food editor, home cook, food blogger, artist, and a complete do-it-yourselfer. Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town in Arkansas with her husband and their fur babies, Highway, Princess, and Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
