Watch video tips and tricks
1 1/2 teaspoons
unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 tablespoons
I doubled this recipe, made a bundt cake and piped the filling inside. The filling does taste exactly like Devil Dog cream filling. In the first step of the filling making I whisked the flour and milk constantly on the stove top until all the lumps were stirred out and the mixture was thick. Then I let it cool completely. I used my stand mixer for creaming the sugar, shortening and vanilla. Then added the cooled flour/milk mixture. The filling came out terrific no problems. Tastes just like the treats I remember from childhood.
i followed the recipe to the letter. The cakes didn't rise and tasted awful, and the cream filling tasted worse.
This recipe is great but I made one small addition. In the cream filling, I added 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream for fluffiness. I,too,found that it needs the double recipe for for filling. Everybody loves it and the kids fight for the bowl when you're done!
We don't have Devil Dogs where I live but we do have Suzy Q and they are like them.I Doubled the filling using butter as I was out of shortening and put cocoa in half of it and in the white half I added almond extract. After the first batch ,I made the cakes smaller than a tablespoon because they really puff up in the oven. I will certainly make these again!
These are pretty tasty. You do have to underbake them a bit so the edges don't turn crispy, and I added a LOT more powdered sugar to the filling (and extra milk to compensate) so it wouldn't taste so much like shortening. Also, 1.5 to 2 batches of the filling works pretty well. All in all, great cookies!
These are really good and super moist! I accidently added 1/4 tsp of almond extract and it turned out really yummy!!
The icing was good, not toooo tooo sweet and the cake was pretty good too.
These are great! Better than the real thing. They're always a hit at gatherings where
there are children.
