    I need to use gluten free cake mix - can a package of pudding be added? If so, instant pudding? Thanks!

    This is excellent fruit cake! So moist & tasty. I have made a variety of flavors but we like chocolate the best. You can also use a regular cake mix and just add a small (3oz.) box of pudding. This is a great way to do combinations of flavors. The fruit keeps a long time in the frig so don't feel you have to make all the cakes at once. I have never used icing on it as it is excellent plain.
