Chocolate Jody - Cake from Heaven

READY IN: 40mins


  • 1
    (510 g) package devil's food cake mix (2 layer size)
  • Glaze
  • 2
    tablespoons cocoa (I use Fry's)
  • 1 12
    tablespoons butter
  • 2
    tablespoons water
  • 34
  • Filling
  • 2
    cups whipping cream (500ml)
  • 1
    (92 g) package instant vanilla pudding (4 serving size)


  • Prepare cake according to package directions. This can be baked in either a 9 x 13, 2 - 8 x 8's or a bundt pan. Allow to cool.
  • In a microwaveable container, heat cocoa, butter and water for 20 seconds. Stir, then heat for an additional 10 seconds.
  • Beat until smooth, using an electric mixer, while adding icing sugar in 1/4 cup increments. Set aside to cool. If once cooled, the glaze is too thick, it may be thinned by stiring in warm water, 1/2 tsp at a time until desired consistancy is reached.
  • Add pudding mix to the whipping cream, and beat until firm peaks form. Set aside.
  • Cut the cooled cake into layers. (cut the 9x13 in half , to form two 9 x 6-1/2" layers).
  • Set aside some of the cream mixture for decorating the top.
  • Spread cream mixture on top of bottom layer, top with the second cake layer. If you have more than two layers -- continue in this fashion, ending with a cake layer.
  • Spread the chocolate glaze on the top layer. Decorate with remaining cream.
