    DuChick's Note:

    This cake was inspired by Devil Dogs, the bone-shaped chocolate cakes with irresistible white goo sandwiched between their layers. I haven't tried these, but they remind me of those Hostess Suzy Q cakes that many of us loved as kids. OK, I still love them! A variation of this recipe would be to cut the cake horizontally in half and sandwich the frosting inside rather than on top. Also, if a moister cake is desired, it's best to let the cake set for one day as it tends to be dry freshly cooled. See Cook's Notes at bottom!

    1. 1
      To make cake:.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Butter and flour a 9-inch square cake pan (2 inches deep).
    3. 3
      Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
    4. 4
      Beat together butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well, then beat in vanilla.
    5. 5
      Add flour mixture and water alternately in batches, beginning and ending with flour mixture and mixing until just combined.
    6. 6
      Pour batter into cake pan and smooth top, then bake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes.
    7. 7
      Cool in pan on a rack 1 hour.
    8. 8
      Transfer cake to a cake plate.
    9. 9
      Make frosting:.
    10. 10
      Combine frosting ingredients with a pinch of salt in a metal bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water and beat with a handheld electric mixer at high speed until frosting is thick and fluffy, 6 to 7 minutes.
    11. 11
      Remove bowl from heat and continue to beat until slightly cooled.
    12. 12
      Mound frosting on top of cake.
    13. 13
      Dust with additional cocoa powder.
    14. 14
      Cooks' notes:.
    15. 15
      • Cake, without frosting, will improve in flavor if made 1 day ahead. Cool, then keep, wrapped in plastic wrap, at room temperature. Frost cake just before serving.
    16. 16
      • The egg whites in the frosting are not fully cooked. You can substitute pasteurized or reconstituted dried egg whites if salmonella is a problem in your area.
