Holy Cow Cake {the recipe}

I’ll be linking up with Kelly’s Korner today to share a favorite dessert! I honestly don’t have just one favorite, but if I had to pick, this would be it!

My mom made up this recipe for Holy Cow Cake, and it has become a family favorite. Beware, it is VERY RICH, which is what I love about it. Ohmyword, it is truly amazing. I only make it every once in a while because when we make it, I can’t stop eating it! We have been making it for years now, but for some reason this is the only picture I could find, and it doesn’t have the frosting on it! I guess once it gets frosted it is eaten before anyone can take a picture! :)

Holy Cow Cake {and Holy Cow Frosting!}

  • 1 butter recipe cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 small box french vanilla pudding
  • 1 jar caramel sauce
  • 1 can Eagle Brand milk

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients except caramel and eagle brand and bake cake in 9X13 pan for 40 minutes. While cake is baking, stir together caramel and Eagle Brand milk. When cake is done, immediately poke holes with fork all over cake, then pour the caramel/Eagle Brand mixture over cake. Let it soak a few hours until cool.

For the frosting, mix the following ingredients with mixer until fluffy. Spread over cooled cake!

  • 8 oz cream cheese {softened}
  • small container Cool Whip {thawed}
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Oh, y’all. You need to make this cake! Enjoy!
