This wonderful and easy recipe was given to me by a friend. It can become a completely different cake each time you make it, by using different flavors of cake mix & pudding. cooking time includes refrigeration time.

We used to have this when I was a kid. We like to use vanilla cake and pudding and top with fresh sliced strawberries OR yellow cake with chocolate pudding and top with sliced bananas!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare cake mix as directed on box, using a 13x9 pan.
  2. Remove cake from oven and using the handle of a wooden spoon, immediately poke holes in the cake about 1 inch apart, making sure to go all the way down to cake bottom.
  3. Combine pudding mix and sugar in a large bowl.
  4. Gradually stir in the milk and beat on low speed for about 1 minute with an electric mixer (do not over beat).
  5. Quickly, before pudding thickens, pour about half of the thin pudding mix evenly over the warm cake and into the holes.
  6. Allow the remaining pudding to thicken slightly, and then use it to frost the cake.
  7. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving, and keep stored in the refrigerator.
