Hi, does anybody know what a "jello vanilla pudding mix" is, or what I could use in place of it. I found a nice recipe for a rum cake but it calls for this! I'm flumexed by the US icon_confused.gificon_confused.gif

Thanks for any help.

Could it be that you just have to add a box of the pudding in? Most of the boxed mix cakes say that adding a box of pudding will make the cake moister. It's one of the method I use. HTH

Noticed that you are in the UK. This is the pudding mix.

Thank you for all your replies and links.

I wondered if anybody knew of maybe a UK alternative that I could use? Do you think it could be Angel Delight? icon_confused.gif

It looks like similar to angel delight to me. I guess the only way to find out is experiment with it.

Yeah I might try, but it seems weird to put AD mix in a cake icon_surprised.gif I'l let you know if I try it. thumbs_up.gif

Does it be "Jello" brand. We have different brands here in the US. I think as long as it is a pudding mix, probably instant, not the cooked kind, it would be ok. Do you have any brand of instant pudding in the UK? I don't see why you couldn't use that instead of Jello brand.

When you say a "pudding mix" is it one that you would normally just mix with milk? We have that kind of mix, and it is what we would have for a dessert. It is branded as Angel Delight and it is like a powder.

I don't know if it is the same thing icon_confused.gif

The instructions and ingredients from a packet of jello instant pudding ( at least according to amazon's product info) seem to be the same as those written on the back of the pack of tesco's delight that I got. Haven't tried it in a recipe yet as the kids found it and made themselves pudding. HTH

Yours aye
