This is an excellent recipe. I used yellow cake mix with vanilla pudding and used milk instead of water (just because I always do that with cake mixes). I glazed it with just a powdered sugar glaze. Took it out of the oven about 10PM last night. I went to bed and left my husband and 3 teenage boys alone with the cake. There is about 3 inches of cake left this morning.

I love this recipe! So many different combinations: yellow cake mix & butterscotch pudding, chocolate/chocolate, yellow/pistachio - it's endless! I also like to drizzle it with icing. Canned frosting melted for a few seconds in the microwave works great! Thanks, Mona!

I've used this recipe for many years, but never with the substitution of sour cream, as another member suggested. I tried it today and the cake was wonderful! I used a devil's food cake mix and vanilla instant pudding, because that's what I had on hand. The recipe made two nice 8"x4" loaf cakes. Delicious! Thanks.

This is so great and easy! I used a yellow cake mix with a sugar-free chocolate pudding mix. I also used the suggestion of someone else and used about a cup of sour cream instead of the water, and 1/4 cup of oil (instead of 1/3 cup). I also added 1 1/2 cups of mini chocolate chips to the mix. It was moist and tasted SO great!

Easy and delicious! I wouldn't call it a pound cake though because it's light and fluffy. I used yellow cake batter and chocolate pudding, which gave it a nice mocha color. I used 1 cup milk instead of 1 cup water, added 3/4 cup semisweet chooclate chips, and about 1/4 cup kahlua. I especially like how this recipe usedsonly 1/2 cup metled frosting. Using vanilla frsoting, I drizzled it over the cake using a fork and the presentation looked great.

Highest cake I ever baked! Very moist, used milk as suggested by several others. Used dark chocolate pudding and chocolate fudge cake mix. I glazed the top with a simple powdered sugar,cream and cocoa powder glaze. Yummy!
