I ALWAYS add pudding to my yellow cake mix, and never to my chocolate. How does every one feel about adding pudding to chocolate cake mix?

Thanks for the insight!

I've tried using the 3D-Wedding cake recipe that calls for pudding mix and sour cream with chocolate cake mixes, and I find that it rises like CRAZY!!! I mean I fill an 8x2 pan half way and it will OVERFLOW the pan and create a super mess in my oven.

I use pudding in all my cakes, regardless of flavor. I do find that chocolate cake rises much more than any other flavor, but in my experience, that is true with or without pudding.

The 3" pans take care of this problem for me. I LOVE the 3D Wedding cake recipe!

What about red velvet cake? What pudding do you pair with that?

I found the pudding and sour cream in a Devils Food mix made it way too fudgy..I really lost the cake texture so I don't add it to that. I have not tried a regular choc cake mix because I love devil's food.

I would do a choc pudding in Red Velvet since it has that hint of cocoa anyway

I saw a cream cheese pudding the other day at the store, That would probably be a great combo.

Oooo, cream cheese! I always wished they would make a cream cheese pudding that I could use in my pastry pride, I am going to look today? What store was it?

Woodman's, but the box was almost the same color as the vanilla pudding box.

I use white chocolate pudding in my red velvet, which doesn't change the color of the batter.

Sometimes, in my yellow or white cakes, I'll use cheesecake pudding instead of vanilla for an extra rich flavor.

Jello has a "Turtle" pudding that is only sold around the holidays.....it is DELICIOUS in a chocolate cake.

I add a packet of dry pudding to the mix and slightly increase the amount of oil and water. I also use 1/2 milk and 1/2 water.
