Cake Project #16: Tunnel of Fudge Cake (named back in the 60's when that wasn't something you'd chuckle over). Not really quite a tunnel but there is a bit of fudginess in the center, not a gooey pudding as described in the Cake Project book. The author relates that "the excess sugar binds to flour proteins and creates the goo". Well I guess that's what happened, because it's not very sweet at all, even without the goo. Supposedly this cake won a Pillsbury bake-off back in the day. But then that is when The Monkees where considered rawkin' good, too.

The original Tunnel of Fudge recipe was made with a frosting mix that Pillsbury no longer manufactures.

Thanks for bringing back a great holiday memory. This was a favorite at holidays in the late 60's. My mom would get raves from the entire family and always say that you should call it Million Dollar Fudge cake because of how much it costs.
