Yellow cake bars are frosted with a shortening and evaporated milk filling in this homage to the famous snack cakes.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Bake cake according to package directions in a 9x13 inch pan. Cool and cut into bars. Cut each bar in half lengthwise to make two layers.
In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in shortening, a little at a time, until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar. Combine evaporated milk and vanilla and beat into filling, scraping the bowl, until fluffy.
Sandwich the bars with the fluffy filling.
