Homemade Drake’s Devil Dogs

Devil Dogs are made by a company named Drake’s, which is owned by Hostess. Devil Dogs are described as “An unfrosted devil’s food cake sandwich with vanilla creme with round edged cake wafers resembling a hot dog.” Sounds good to me!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 can (12 oz) whipped vanilla frosting

1. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Combine flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to blend. Stir in buttermilk egg, and melted butter. Stir with a wooden spoon until just blended.
3. Spoon some of the mixture into a large resealable plastic bag (or pastry bag). Snip a 1/2-inch corner from the bag. Pipe 3-1/2 by 1-inch logs, about 2 inches apart, on prepared pan, about 12 per pan. Bake 12-14 minutes or until firm to the touch. Transfer to wire rack and let cool completely.
4. Spoon the frosting into a second resealable bag. Snip a 1/2-inch corner from the bag. Pipe some of the frosting onto the flat side of half of the cookies. Sandwich with another cookie, flat side against frosting. Continue with remaining cookies and frosting.

*Makes 12 servings.

    What type of pan did you use for the devil dog cake? I’ve been looking but can’t seem to find one. ThanksReplyCancel

      Hi Carin — you don’t need a special pan. Just use a cookie sheet and follow the instructions. If you pipe 4″ lines of batter onto the cookie sheet, they will spread out and bake into the proper shape. Just be sure that you use parchment paper or non-stick spray on the cookie sheet :)

      Hope that helps!ReplyCancel
