How To Make Gluten-Free Ding Dongs
This recipe is made in three parts. The cake, filling, and the shell. When it comest to the cake itself I like to whip up a simple batter. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk until combined. Add the oil and vanilla and whisk to combine everything.
Next you will want to add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Pour hot water into batter 1/3 a cup at a time, mixing between each addition.
Pour batter into
Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then flip the cake over onto a larger pan lined with parchment paper to cool completely.
When the cakes are cool, use a 2.5-inch biscuit or cookie cutter to cut 15 round cakes. Place the cakes on a flat surface.
Using a small spoon, scoop the center out of 10 cakes, being careful to leave a thin layer of cake along the bottom.
Using a serrated knife, cut the remaining five cakes in half lengthwise to serve as toppers for each cake.
Filling For The Gluten-Free Ding Dongs
Make the cake first and next you will want to make the filling. Combine butter, marshmallow crème, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Beat until smooth and fluffy.
Place filling in a piping bag and pipe into center of each cake. Top each cake with a thin slice of cake and press to secure.
The Perfect Shell
Chop chocolate into small chunks and place in a heat-safe bowl. Place heavy cream and sugar in a small saucepan.
Heat over medium heat until it begins to boil
Place each cake on the end of a metal spatula or pie server. Pour the chocolate sauce over the top of the cake and place the cake on a flat surface to set. Continue the process until all 10 cakes are coated.
This might look like a lot of work but everything is really simple to do and the end Ding Dongs are totally amazing! Below you will find a printable recipe and I do hope that you save this one because it is so yummy.
