Simple and Great White Chocolate Cake

I was looking for a simple and flavorful white cake for an upcoming wedding. I typically don't like white cake because it lacks flavor and crumbles easily. I wanted the recipe to be EASY, and simple. I didn't want to mess with two bowls, cooking, or whipping egg whites. Thanks to a mixture of CC recipe ideas and a little of my own input, I cake up with a great white cake. It's moist, easy, and full of flavor.

Simple and Great White Chocolate Cake


  • ?1 (18 1/4 ounce) box Betty Crocker super moist white cake mix ?1/4 cup cake flour ?1 1/3 cups water ?1/4 cup canola oil ?2 teaspoons clear vanilla ?1 teaspoon butter flavoring (optional) ?3 egg whites ?1 box of White Chocolate Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix (4 ½ c box)


Beat on low until liquid is incorporated. Increase speed to medium speed until all ingredients are incorporated. Batter will be as thick as pudding and will be silky and fairly smooth. Grease and flour 2 9-inch cake pans. Pour into greased and floured pans. Bake at 325° for 40- 45 minutes or until cake tests done. Do not overbake. ??

love love love love this cake!!!!!! it is super moist and dense and soooo delicious!!!! everybody requests this cake all the time now. thanks for the recipe!!
Did you use regular or sugar-free pudding? I could only find sugar-free white chocolate pudding at the store, and would never put aspartame into a cake for 150 people I don't know, because lots of people (me included) think it's potentially bad for you. So, I substituted regular vanilla pudding and used 1 tsp vanilla with 2-3 tsp almond extract. It was wonderful, very dense and moist, didn't squish even when it was stacked 6" high. This will be my go-to almond cake recipe from now on!
I made this cake, very delicious, also tried it in chocolate. From SA so all the ingredients not the same. The cake is very soft. Do you use it for wedding cakes? Will it not fall in?
Didn't see these posts until now. I'm making a wedding cake tonight and needed my recipe. Sandysdream, yes, I use it for wedding cakes. It hasn't fallen. Others have been able to use it for stacked cakes too. The cake flour helps, I'm sure. Rillabella - I didn't use sugar free and I wouldn't use it for masses either. Only if requested for a medical reason. I use instant Jello brand. Sometimes it takes two stores to find it. Walmart typically carries it, but my local market does not. When I find it, I try to stock up. Ironically, I need 8 boxes tonight and I only have two! Yikes! Glad you liked this recipe. TFL
Thank you for the recipe ideas. I am going to try it for a christening cake i am making this weekend. Wish me luck! Thanks again
Thanks for the tip - I was able to find the pudding at walmart and finally try the proper recipe. Unfortunately, I hadn't checked what kind of cake mix to buy and got the wrong one - pillsbury - which calls for way different amounts of water, oil, and eggs. It didn't have quite the same texture and wasn't as white-chocolatey as I'd hoped, but it was all my own fault. Making my almond version again today and am confident that it will be a hit again!
Wonderful recipe! I'm finding that you can swap different cake and pudding flavors. I tried this with chocolate and with lemon as well as the original, and my friends loved all three.
Has anyone tried cupcakes?
Did you add the butter flavoring??
I just made this tonight. When I leveled of the cake and tasted was awesome. The flavor and texture is great. I followed the directions just as stated.
Cupcakes turned out great! I did not use the butter flavoring. I used vegtable oil instead of canola & AP flour. I also used 2 egg whites & 1 full egg which is what I usually do unless I need a pure white color, because it seems to hold together better.
Are you supposed to mix the pudding before putting into cake batter? I made this cake with white chocolate pudding, but coukd not taste the chocolate.
This made a fantastic cake! It was super moist, fluffy, and had a great flavor! Thanks so much!
Tried this on the weekend for an order and I just love it!!! Thanks for sharing :)
I just tried this recipe this weekend for my daughter's first birthday cake and it was awesome! Perfectly dense and still moist. I used this with raspberry filling and almond buttercream, it was a hit all around. Thanks!
Hello, I was wondering, what kind of frosting would be great on this? Buttercream? and if so, which recipe. I am sooo new to cake making and I volunteered to make a birthday cake for a friend's daughter's birthday party. I am attempting a topsy turvy type one. So, I am planning on making this recipe and using buttercream, and then covering it in store bought fondant. Do you all think this is a good combination. I am concerned more about flavor than what the cake looks like. Also, any suggestions on a chocolate flavored cake? Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
Do these cakes turn out really sweet? I'm in Italy, and they don't like very sweet cakes here. Any recipe suggestions?
I made this Cake and used a raspberry filling and buttercream icing for a bridal shower and it was a hit!! Thanks so much!
I have made this my standard recipe. I have even tried it with several other pudding flavors and cake mixes. I put vanilla pudding in a spice cake as well as the confetti cake mix, chocolate in chocolate, etc. My next trials are going to be lemon and banana. Great recipe!!!!
Three4thequeen, Have you increased this recipe and used as a sheet cake? I have an order for a wedding for 400 people and I would love to try this recipe. Just wondering if you've done that. Also have you ever mad in advance and froze it? Is it still as moist. I plan on making one this weekend and freezing just to try it. Any advice you can give would be excellent! Lizmybit
