Unless you want to pay $100 or more to buy Suzy Q's off ebay or go without, you'll need to make your own version of Suzy Q's now. I knew this recipe would be a big hit at our house as soon as I saw marshmallow fluff in the ingredient list. I was actually on the phone with my mother discussing it and my DS7 heard me tell her I just needed to grab the box & some fluff. He started jumping up and down & yelling “tell Nana to get the box” before zipping out of the room. He ran to the pantry & returned with a jar of fluff. Of course, he had no idea what a Suzy Q was but anything with marshmallow fluff is a great recipe to him.
Suzy Q Copycat Recipe
For the Cake:
- 1 box Devil's Food cake mix
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup oil
- 3 eggs
For the Filling:
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 1/4 c. powdered sugar
- 1 1/4 c. marshmallow fluff
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
Prepare cake according to instructions on the box.
While the cake cools, prepare the filling
Mix butter, powdered sugar, fluff, and vanilla, on high speed until nice & fluffy.
Cut cooled cake into rectangles.
Cover half of rectangles with filling.
Cover with other half.
I like to use Safflower or coconut oil instead of vegetable oil whenever possible. My favorite brand so far is Hollywood Safflower Oil. It has worked great in every cake & muffin recipe I've tried so far.
This recipe is an adaption from Suzy Q's for Susie K. Her filling is great, but I prefer to use the box cake mix to save myself a little time.
