Jell-O Pudding Cake

Recipe Information
General Foods Corporation, 1981

  • 1 package of cake mix, any flavor
  • 2 packages (4 serving size) JELLO brand instant pudding, any flavor
  • 1 cup (225 ml) confectioners sugar
  • 4 cups (950 ml) cold milk.
  • Prepare cake mix as directed on package, baking in a 13 x 9 inch pan.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Poke holes quickly down through cake with round handle of wooden spoon at 1-inch intervals (or use a plastic straw, using a turning motion to make large holes.)
  • Only after poking holes, combine pudding mix with sugar in large bowl.
  • Gradually stir in milk.
  • Then beat at low speed of electric mixer for not more than 1 minute (do not overbeat).
  • Quickly before pudding thickens, pour about half of the thin pudding evenly over warm cake and into the holes to make the stripes.
  • Allow pudding to thicken slightly, then spoon over the top, swirling it to "frost" the cake.
  • Chill at least 1 hour.
  • Store cake in refrigerator.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, if desired.
This is an excellent pudding cake and kids love it. Hope it helps. It is from General Foods in 1981.
