Lori's Story

I don't remember where I found this recipe, to be honest! It's super easy to make and you can change it up with different flavors of cake mix & puddings to fit your mood & the season. It's such a moist cake, the glaze can be optional!


1 pkg
red velvet cake mix
1 pkg
white chocolate instant pudding mix
4 large
1 1/4 c
1/2 c
vegetable oil

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 10-inch bundt pan & set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients in order given. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes; pour into prepared pan. Bake 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in pan 10 - 15 minutes before removing to serving plate. For glaze, use 1/2 cup frosting & microwave 15 - 30 seconds until liquid; drizzle over cake.
You can use any combination of cake mix & pudding...I've tried lemon cake mix and lemon pudding, chocolate cake mix & chocolate pudding with white glaze, and at Halloween I made it with spice cake mix and pumpkin spice pudding, with cream cheese frosting.

    I LOVE Red Velvet Cake..Today is National Pound Cake Day 03/04/2012 was looking for a pound cake recipe and came across yours..Wanted to ask you I have a Red Velvet cake mix but I do not have the white chocolate pudding mix..Can I use French Vanilla or just Vanilla or even Cheesecake flavored pudding in with this recipe or does it have to be what you used in order for it to taste like the Red Velvet pound cake you made?..Does the pudding flavor affect the taste of the cake your using?..Wonder if pecans can be added in as well to this pound cake mix?..Sorry so may questions..Thanks for getting back with me..:o)

    I didn't notice that the white chocolate pudding mix made any flavor difference, so you could probably substitute any flavor you want (the cheesecake sounds good!) I'm sure you could add pecans or other nuts to the mix...I haven't yet, but now that you mention it, I'll have to try it with the spice cake/pumpkin spice pudding variety & see how it tastes! If you do use any kind of white glaze or icing on it, the red dye in the cake mix will turn it pink after about 2 or 3 days...discovered that at Christmas!

    Thanks Lori for answering me back..I looked at 3 different grocery stores today and not a one of them sell the white chocolate pudding mix..so if it did not add any flavor to the Red Velvet then I am going to try the Jello Instant Cheesecake flavor and see what taste I might get !!
