Easy Pudding Cake Recipes
I am all about easy meal ideas and desserts. Any way to really amp up a traditional cake mix I love doing. It is quick and easy but makes it taste a bit more like homemade with this little addition.
Of course homemade cake is amazing. I have done that as well but most times I am in a rush and like to have this easy option.
What Does Adding Pudding to Cake Mix Do
Makes it SO SO moist! If you have these few ingredients at home you can pretty much make any flavor profile. You just need: cake mix, milk, eggs, oil, and a box of instant pudding. Match the flavor of the cake mix with your pudding and you will agree with me that it really takes it from good to amazing.
Like for our fall cake I used spice cake mix with vanilla pudding. It came out great, for our banana pudding cake I used yellow/white cake mix and banana pudding. Our egg nog cake is our latest creation and a perfect Christmas dessert to try.
- This easy pumpkin pudding cake recipe is a hit during the Fall. Any time of year it tastes fabulous!
- Our banana pudding cake is so moist and filled with not only banana flavor but chunks of banana pieces too!
- If you’re baking during the holidays you’ve got to try our egg nog pudding cake. With a little scoop of ice cream on top!
How do you add pudding to cake mix
You just add it dry right out of the box usually unless directed otherwise. The milk will mix in with it when stirred and thicken just as if you made it in a bowl. Here are some more easy pudding cake recipes to choose from, butterscotch is on my list next weekend!

Cake with Pudding Mix
I have made a variety of pudding cakes but typically use my 13×9″ baking pan, I have a glass one. Using a bundt pan is a great option too. I am on my way to make a chocolate pudding cake as we speak using that. It gives it a prettier look with really no more effort on your part.
I will say that using a bundt pan does make it a bit drier though overall. Since it browns on the bottom/top when you flip it over but both are good.
- Pineapple bundt poke cake
- Gluten free raspberry vanilla pudding bundt cake
- In the summertime lemon pudding cake would be a great dessert for a barbecue!
Now Instant Pot bread pudding doesn’t actually use the latter word in it but is so moist you’d think that it did.
