Margie's Incredible Chocolate Cake Recipe

Another wonderful recipe from Margie, the former owner of Little Bitts, an incredible cake decorating shop in Wheaton, MD.

Margie's Incredible Chocolate Cake Recipe


  • 2 Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Devils Food cake mixes (again the best brand to use) 2 1/3 cups water 1 cup Crisco oil 8 large eggs 1 small box chocolate instant pudding 1 small box cooked cooked pudding (it's the kind that you would have to cook on the stove and is usually right next to the instant) 1 envelope Dream Whip (also in the baking aisle in powder form -- normally comes two envelopes in a box) 2 Tbsp Apple Cider vinegar (works better than plain vinegar)


Combine all ingredients. Blend until moistened and then beat on medium speed four to five minutes. Bake in a 350 degree oven and depending on what size cake pans you use, check after 20 minutes. Cake is done when you can stick a fork in the middle and it comes out clean. Makes one 12x18 sheet cake or (4) 8" or 9" cake layers, (2) 13x9x2 layers or a lot of cupcakes. Freezes well. I won't touch it.

I don't understand which one is the cooked pudding? I can't find it at the store would it say cooked pudding?
it's the one that reads cook & serve and not instant.
This makes the BEST tasting cakes! I use this recipe for all my cakes and cupcakes, but am looking for something that will hold up better for 3D. It is very moist but a little soft.
Okay - stupid question . . . I am assuming that when it says "cooked cooked pudding" that it means to cook the pudding before adding it to the cake mix?!?!?
