"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I am 9 years old. This was very good.It was also quick,and really easy because I was able to make this recipe. My sisters that are younger than me loved it!!!!!!!!!
This can be called many things, but it is not a pudding cake. It is more widely known as a trifle. A pudding cake is a cake that you bake and it makes it's own pudding under it. The recipe itself is a good one, but it is trifle. It is even better with chocolate cake instead of angel food.
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 layers with the pudding and used the whipped cream as a frosting. You still have to be careful not to get the pudding into the whipped cream, but I think it was much prettier this way and seemed more appropriate for a birthday cake. Very yummy!
Editor Note: The pudding ingredient in this recipe was changed to "instant" at the recipe submitter's request.
**Directions don't sound like there is supposed to be regular AND instant pudding. Am I missing something?
Extra chocolate is never a bad thing!
First of all, this recipe was exceptionally easy and delicious. The cool thing is it can be any kind of pudding. I put in banana pudding and chopped bananas instead of chocolate and it tasted ~amazing~. It was also for my mother for mother's day and she loved it. We ate all of it in two days! Thanks a ton for putting this on allrecipes.
Wonderful recipe! If your looking for a low cal, low fat, and low cholesterol dessert, that young and old will love. This is it! Thank you Linda!
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!!
