How to make Cake Mix with Pudding
By Amanda Camden-Spina MyKitchenIsMyCastle
Though I love to cook, I'm fairly new to baking "outside the box" lol. I've seen several wonderful sounding recipes I'd like to try, listing cake mix with pudding as an ingredient. Yay!! Right up my alley! =D
But wait, I've never seen a cake mix with pudding. Hmmmm.... So I did a little internet digging and found this article/recipe. Thought I'd share it for anyone else out there who was scratching their heads.
"You can use cake mix with an additional ingredient to make it taste moist and homemade: pudding. Adding an instant-pudding mix to your cake mix and altering the other ingredient amounts and bake time will produce a delicious cake--and no one will detect that it started with a mix.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy"

Duncan Hines, in the '70's or '80's, put "For Variety, Try...." and added two recipes on the bottom of the back of the box of cake mix. (The box was sort of a shiny gold color..). Anyway, I managed to find one in my ancient box of recipes...they were firm enough to use in bunt pans! I used different flavor and just varied the pudding flavors. Made MANY! Good with just powdered sugar over them, too! Or a glaze.
Orange Pound Cake
1 pkg Deluxe II Orange Supreme Cake MIx
1 pk instant vanilla pudding (4 oz)
1/2 C oil
1 C. water
350 degrees for 45 - 55 min. Blend, then beat at medium for 2 minutes. Greased and floured tube pan. cool 25 minutes before removing.
Hope you enjoy. Easy and good.

You are welcome....you inspired me..used yellow cake mix and vanilla pudding....used bundt pan, then when cooled drizzled canned icing thinned a little with rum flavoring mixed in...warmed it a tiny bit in the micro before drizzling over cake with spoon. All gone but 2 pieces! Yummy.

Thank you for the info. I was trying to figure out yesterday how much of the mixing ingredients I would have to add in order to get the batter right. I added my own twists to this. I used orange cake mix, and added vanilla pudding mix. The cupcakes came out fantastic. I poked holes with a skewer and added mango gelatin (jello), set overnight and topped it with cream cheese frosting. I thought maybe it would be too many flavors but it was a summer dream in my mouth. YUM.
