I cater alot...mostly for fundraisers, pigroasts and parties. I have come up with a great way to make ANY cake moist. This is foolproof! Promise! Cake can be a boring dessert and I needed to find a way to turn it up a notch to serve to the public.

How to Make THE MOISTEST CAKE EVER

Step-by-Step

  1. In large bowl, mix dry cake mix and dry pudding mix. Stir thoroughly. In another bowl, add wet ingredients of cake mix together with the buttermilk. Beat together with handmixer. Add to dry ingredients. Beat together 2 minutes. Bake in greased pan according to package directions of cake mix.
  2. NOTE:Because the buttermilk is added moisture, it will require a couple minutes more to bake than the package directions call for...up to 5 minutes more to absorb the moisture. Just take a toothpick and poke in center of cake to test doneness. Wait till you taste it!
  3. NOTE: Try matching pudding flavor with the cake. Like Butterscotch with spice cake. Chocolate with chocolate cake, Lemon pudding with lemon cake, etc. The best marriage is the carrot cake mix with that pumpkin pudding you can get only around Thanksgiving. Stock up on it then! Also, for the Red Velvet cake mix the white chocolate pudding is great. How about a cherry cake mix with the pistachio pudding?!? Hmmm...I might make THAT tonight! WARNING: THis works with brownie mixes, too. But, if you do this to an already tempting dessert, be prepared to just eat the whole pan yourself. They are the best ever brownies, bar none.
  4. This cake is so moist that it's not necessary to frost it all the time. Try putting walnuts or pecans and raisins in the spice or carrot cake. If you do want to use icing a cream cheese icing is really nice with this recipe.
