This is a special cake I am making for a baby shower. My sweet neighbor, Beckie, is having a girl after FOUR boys! Can you imagine the thrill? Pink headbands. Pink blankies, Pink everything! Except for the cake–it’s CHOCOLATE! I learned years ago that I really can’t make a much better cake than Duncan Hines. So I usually use a mix, but then I can’t resist adding something to make it special. To a yellow cake I add rum flavoring, and fill with vanilla pudding with rum flavoring. Top with Coolwhip. I will definitely blog this someday! But today, for Beckie, I made a Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix and added 1 box Godiva instant pudding mix. Here it is:
CHOCOLATE PUDDING CAKE
1 Chocolate cake mix, mix according to directions, then add the following:
1 box chocolate instant pudding
1/2 cup milk
Bake in 3 pans, dividing mix evenly. bake about 15 minutes each, since they will be thinner than normal.
1 box vanilla instant pudding, made with heavy cream
(I did not add flavoring. But you could add rum or maple or almond)
Mix pudding, Cool cake and fill layers:
When I serve this cake I will put some little pink roses around the base. What fun this is going to be!!
