I know I've read it lots, but I can't seem to remember if you add one extra egg with it also. Please help! icon_smile.gif

Yep, that's correct:

Basic doctoring of a cake mix: One extra egg and One box of instant pudding.

do you ever add pudding if there is pudding in the mix? I think I read somewhere else to just substitute the water with milk or buttermilk.

I love pudding in cake, it makes it so moist. I usually don't add it if I use a mix that has it in it already.

the only time I have ever had a cake NOT turn out is when I added 1C sour cream, 1 egg & 1 sm pudding to reg white cake mix. The center remained soggy, kind of like a sponge and I baked it an extra 30 minutes!

I just baked a cake for the 3D bear pan and added pudding and extra egg and it did a great job making the cake a little more firm, not to mention moist!

I never doctor up my cakes.... but the pudding and extra egg sounds great! I'm going to try it too! Thanks Kaka for starting this thread, I had the same question!

No, if there is pudding in the mix, I don't add it.

I am not sure about the milk or buttermilk...

As far as the pudding goes...is it always vanilla or do you use different flavors for different cakes?

Add a pudding that matches or goes well with the cake mix flavor you are using.

For example:

Vanilla pretty much goes with every flavor.

Chocolate for chocolate cake mix.

Strawberry for strawberry mix or you can also use vanilla.

etc..

I try to match it - but I've used cheesecake-flavored pudding with white and spice mixes and it was great!

I always use milk instead of water.....I'll never use water in a cake mix again! It makes a big difference I think. thumbs_up.gif Not sure about the adding pudding in a mix that already has it. It seems I read on here before that someone did it and it turned out fine. I'll see if I can find the thread.

So to be clear, if you add pudding and one egg, do you have to lengthen the time it takes to bake?
