 Ingredients List

  • *yellow cake mix (I used the Duncan Hines Butter recipe yellow cake mix)
  • *ingredients called for on cake box (eggs/butter/water)
  • *large box of instant vanilla pudding (I used sugar free, fat free)
  • *amount of milk called for on pudding box (mine was 3 cups; I used skim milk)
  • for icing- (from my MIL)
  • *1 cup sugar
  • *1/3 cup cocoa (I used Hershey's Dark)
  • *1/4 cup milk
  • *1/4 cup butter
  • *1 teaspoon vanilla


To make cake - mix up cake batter according to directions on box. Bake as directed in a 13x9 pan. While cake is cooling, mix up vanilla pudding according to package directions. Poke holes in your cake with the end of a wooden spoon (see notes). Pour and smooth vanilla pudding over surface of cake.

To make icing - Mix sugar, cocoa and milk in a pot, bring to a boil over medium heat - stirring the entire time WITH A WOODEN SPOON. Boil for one minute (still stirring!) Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Mix until it just starts to thicken - don't let it thicken too much or it is very difficult to spread over cake. Pour over pudding layer of cake. Icing will 'set' on cake.
