Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Whisk cake mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs together in a bowl until smooth; pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 23 to 28 minutes.
  4. Whisk cold milk and pudding mix together in a bowl until pudding is soft and thickened, about 2 minutes.
  5. Poke holes into the cake using the handle of a clean wooden spoon. Pour pudding over cake, spreading evenly. Spread whipped topping over pudding layer and sprinkle vanilla wafers over whipped topping.

Tonight I made this for the college to eat tomorrow. So my recipe was slightly larger lol. It turned out great and I'm sure the rest of the college students will love it.

The pudding was too thick to spread and not enough to cover the cake.

I used this reciepe and loved it!!!...I made a few small adjustments to suit my own taste I added bananas and instead of vanilla wafers I used chessmen cookie. I also used a mix of vanilla and banana cream pudding

I think the trick is, as soon as the pudding begins to thicken, stop whisking it, and dump it onto the cake. It was just fine. Overall it was good. It wasn't "oh wow" ...but I'd make it again. I didn't bother with a picture because it looks identical to the first main photo on the recipe.

I used banana nut bread, added 2 extra packages of pudding and made it kind of soupy, poured it over cake mix so it would get the bread really moist inside, put it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, then proceeded with the remaining prep, adding bananas on top of the pudding, then the whipped topping and vanilla wafer crumbs. It turned out absolutely delicious. It actually happened by mistake the first time, as the pudding would not set up, so I put it in the fridge to get it to set up. That didn't work, so I added two more packages of pudding that did thicken up. The rest, as they say, is history.

I tweaked it a little and used vanilla pudding instead of banana and put slices strawberries between the pudding and shipped cream and a few on top and it was AMAZING!!! This is 1 of my new favorite cakes :)
