My go to Recipe is the Durable Cake for 3d and wedding cakes.

Does anyone have a scratch recipe for chocolate and/or vanilla cake that uses both sourcream and pudding mix?

I LOVE this cake (especially in chocolate!) but would love to be able to make it without the boxed mix.

Many thanks!

You can sub out the milk/buttermilk for pudding, or so I've been told.

You can sub the 1/2c of milk/buttermilk for a small box of jello pudding mix by itself or prepared pudding?

I will love you forever and ever and ever!!!!

I've made this recipe and it's very good...it's not one that I use in my business because to me adding pudding mix to a "scratch" recipe sort of defeats the whole idea of baking from scratch.

But, as I said I've made it and it's a good solid recipe.

Prepared. Again, so I've been told, I've never done it, so let me know how it goes!

I'm so tired (and pregnant) so I didn't even think of that! DUH!! I do make pudding from scratch as well but I'm so used to my normal recipe it didn't dawn on me to make the pudding from scratch too!

How about a chocolate cake? I'd LOVE a chocolate recipe with the pudding and sourcream too!

Thank you cakey ladies!

This is a scratch recipe I have used several times. It's a pound cake texture with a very fine tight crumb. None of that fluffy stuff, LOL.

You can sub any flavor of pudding and extract. For chocolate, I'd probably do a chocolate pudding, NM chocolate extract, and replace some of the flour with cocoa powder.
