Adding pudding mix to a cake mix

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Years ago, before the advent of these "pudding already in the mix" cakes that are available these days, the cake mix box used to have instructions printed on it in regards to adding your own package of instant pudding mix to the cake mix in order to make the cake moister.

From what I can remember, there was more than just the package of pudding mix to add when you chose to do this, but I can't remember what the other item(s) was/were. I think it may have been extra water or cooking oil, and/or possibly an egg, but I'm not positive about that.

I would really appreciate it if there is anyone out there who can remember what it was you did, because these "pudding already in the mix" cakes do not turn out as moist as when you added the pudding mix yourself.

Form what I have always heard, use 1 box of pudding mix and 1 extra egg. I have been making my cakes from scratch this last year or so, so I'm a bit off on boxed mixes.

Thanks Jayme, I'll try that next time and see if it works out.

I prefer scratch cakes myself, but it's still handy to have a cake mix or two around for emergencies - like when you've run out of an ingredient or two necessary for the scratch cake.
