  1. Cake Preparation: Start by preparing the chocolate cake according to the package instructions. Utilize vegetable oil, eggs, and water as specified. Pour the batter into a greased 9×13 inch pan and bake. Once done, allow the cake to cool completely before proceeding to the next step.
  2. Filling: In a medium saucepan, combine granulated sugar, 1/2 cup butter, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Heat over medium, stirring continuously. Gradually whisk in the flour until the mixture is smooth. Continue to cook, stirring, until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  3. Assembling the Cake: Spread the cooled filling evenly over the top of the cooled cake, ensuring an even layer.
