Question for you.........

When using a cake mix extender recipe that also calls for a box of pudding.....................do you use a box mix that DOES NOT have a pudding mix in it? (Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker) or could I get away with using Pillsbury Pudding in the Mix and still add the pudding?

Just curious if that would work.....since I only use Pillsbury Pudding in the Mix.

I do have the Cake Mix Doctor book and she advises against using a box mix that has pudding in it when adding a 3 oz box of pudding.

What are your thoughts????

I always add a small box of instant pudding mix...regardless of the mix brand...even Pillsbury, and have never had a problem. icon_smile.gif

I add a box of pudding to all my cakes regardless of brand or whether or not they already have pudding in them, works fine.

I added pudding to the box mix you referred to and the cake came out fine. However, it was almost too moist. I found it more difficult to cut for my topsy turvy cake than it usually is.

I am new at this, but when you put pudding mix in the cake mix, this makes this moist??? also when pudding it in you don't have to add more of a wet ingredient then what the cake box mix calls for??? one more questions what size pudding mix do you add per box of cake mix.

thank you icon_wink.gif
