Description

This is my go-to cake! It is so moist and easy to make since it starts with a boxed cake mix. I usually use a yellow cake mix but you can vary the flavor depending on your choice of cake and pudding mix. Yummy!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • 1 package (18.25 Oz. Box) Yellow Or White Cake Mix
  • 1 package (4-serving Size Package) Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix Or Your Choice Of Flavor
  • 1-⅓ cup Water
  • 4 whole Large Eggs
  • ½ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • _____
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 16 ounces, weight Tub Of Cool Whip Or 2 Cups Homemade Whipped Cream, Chilled 4 Hours
  • 1 package (4-serving Size Package) Vanilla Pudding Mix
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 dash Vanilla Extract (optional)

Preparation

Cake directions:

Combine cake mix, pudding mix, water, eggs, and oil in a large mixer bowl. Blend; beat at medium speed for 4 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Pour into greased and floured 8 or 9-inch cake rounds or a 9×13 pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 35-40 minutes. Cool 15 minutes in the pan. Remove from the pan and fully cool on a rack.

Frosting directions:

Combine Cool Whip or whipped cream, pudding mix, and milk in a mixer bowl. Beat until thick; frost cake. It’s that simple! I sometimes like to add a splash of vanilla extract to the frosting. Mm-mm!

Yes Brittany that’s a great idea for the two layer cake and you leave the pudding in powder form.

The cake was excellent; so moist and flavorful. I made cupcakes and baked 28 min. I was concerned about the 325 degree temp. but it worked out perfectly. I used a different frosting recipe, but next time I’ll try this one. Will definitely use this recipe again.

A moist cake with a superb frosting. I used a strawberry cake mix and added strawberry pudding. I chose to make a three layer cake so I could have an excuse to pile on the frosting. Served it on Father’s Day and received many compliments. Thanks jolieo for a great recipe.

My husband made this today to take to a friend that just landed a great job. It was excellent. Just wondering if you prefer one cake mix over another.

I got 24 cupcakes and baked them about 28 – 30 mins
