  • 1 box cake mix – any flavor/any brand
  • 1 package (3.4 oz) instant pudding and pie filling mix – any flavor/any brand
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 can frosting – any flavor/any brand


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt or tube pan (sometimes I dust with powdered sugar instead of flour).
  2. Combine cake and pudding mix with eggs, water, vanilla, and oil. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour in prepared pan and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until done. Cool completely and invert on serving dish.
  3. To frost, heat frosting in microwave for 10-15 seconds. Stir and drizzle over cake. The instructions say to use 1/2 cup; I say use the whole thing!
