Gob Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)
Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2006
This is SO YUMMY and does taste like a gob (whoopie pie). I did not use the frosting. I used a much easier, fool proof recipe. Beat 3 cups powdered sugar with 1/3 cup softened butter. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and gradually beat in 1-2 tablespoons of milk until frosting is spreadable. MMMMM!

My husband can't stop raving about this cake. However, I didn't use the icing it suggested. I used a cream cheese icing instead... just because I had it leftover from another cake. We're originally from PA and this reminded us of home.

The cake portion of this was incredibly moist and wonderful and tasted just like the cake portion of a gob. The icing, however, was a bit of a mess. While beating it for the 10 minutes, it became a kind of runny mess - maybe it was the shortening? I finally added some confectioners sugar, which made it a little better. It still tasted good, but looked strange. I'll make again with a different icing.

I made this cake for my mother-inlaws birthday. The cake is very easy to make and really tastes like a gob. I will be making this many more times in the future and would recommend the recipe.

I love Gobs from PA and this recipe tasted just like them. I have made the cake twice and it is very moist. The second time I made it, I added a little peanut butter to the icing and it was delicious!
