Chocolate Pudding Cake I

Chocolate Pudding Cake I


"This is a very quick and simple no bake dessert cake. I've been making it for years without a written recipe. I have also tried it with different flavors such as Coconut/Pineapple. This recipe lends itself well to experimentation. Note: If desired, chopped nuts may be added to the pudding before spreading over cake, or may be sprinkled over the top of the pudding before adding the whipped topping layer."

I made this but with a few changes. I used a mix rather than store bought cake. Instead of tearing the cake into pieces, I cut it into 3 layers. I then "frosted" each the bottom and middle la...

Editor Note: The pudding ingredient in this recipe was changed to "instant" at the recipe submitter's request.

We made this when I was growing up, but we would use vanilla pudding and instead of the chocolate sprinkled on top, we would break up a butterfinger bar instead. Delicious!!

Excellent and easy, the best thing to make in a hurry. No hard work, and very good even using low-fat ingredients. Sometimes good with low-fat graham crackers instead of angel cake, but both a...

Very fast and easy to make. We found the angle food cake to be a little dry.
