  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 5 8-inch cake pans, and line them with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the cake mix, baking powder, flour, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. With an electric mixer, beat the mixture with water, vegetable oil, and egg whites at low speed until thoroughly mixed; increase speed to medium, and beat 2 minutes. Scoop 1 cup of batter into each of the 5 prepared cake pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cakes are set in the middle, about 8 minutes; watch carefully so the thin cakes don't burn. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove to wire racks to finish cooling.
  4. Whisk the chocolate pudding mix with 2 cups of milk in a bowl until thoroughly blended; let stand 2 minutes to thicken. Place a cake layer on a serving dish, and spread with about 1/2 cup of pudding; repeat with remaining layers and pudding, ending with a cake layer.
  5. In a bowl, mash the cream cheese and butter together until thoroughly combined; mix in confectioners' sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and milk, slowly adding and mixing in milk as needed to make a spreadable frosting. Ice the top and sides of the cake with the frosting. Refrigerate leftovers.

So moist and delicious! My husband has been asking for a doberge cake ever since we lived in New Orleans 10 years ago. I tried one once that was complicated and didn't turn out well. This was...

deliciously moist and sweet! very good. :)

I make cakes for a living, and I wasn't to thrilled with the end result. 1st. The recipe all in it's different components were great. However, this cake is soo light, it easily crumbled as I add...

An easy and delicious cake that impressed everyone! The icing is the best I ever tasted and so easy to spread but I had to double the recipe to cover the top and sides. Highly recommended!
