This is my favorite cake and I take it to just about every potluck I go to. I am always inundated with requests for the recipe each time. Some of my variations are: Devil's Food with White Chocolate Pudding frosting, Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Cream Pudding, Yellow Cake with Chocolate Pudding (my favorite), Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Pudding, Funfetti Cake with Strawberry Cream Pudding...the combinations are endless!
A traditional favorite in our family.
This has been a favorite cake for many years. I especially like the yellow cake with chocolate pudding, but you can use any combination of flavor, the sky's the limit.
