yellow cake mix
1 (3.5 ounce) package
instant vanilla pudding mix

This recipe is awesome! Being a cake decorator by trade, the ease and denseness of the cake is ideal for weddings. So many ask for the recipe... but I keep it a secret! Too good to let go! Besides, would you want to admit you cheated? :-)
Good texture. Other than that, just a glorified yellow cake mix cake.
I used to make poundcakes in mini loaf pans for everyone at Christmas. Each pound cake recipe made three small cakes. This year I was looking for a way to cut down on the cost, and tried this recipe. I added 1/8 tsp. of mace, which really adds to the pound cake flavor. The cakes are absolutely delicious. Also, the recipe makes four small cakes instead of three. This is great!
Excellent flavor and texture! I've been trying out several recipes for wedding cakes and so far this is one of my favorites. Very moist!
Sorry, but this cake did not go over big in my house. In all fairness the cake came out good but it's just not the typical pound cake that we like. It was too spongy, where we like a more dense type pound cake.
Very moist and delicious cake. I added 1 T. poppy seeds and I used 1 tsp of almond extract in place of the butter extract and baked them in small coffee cans for Christmas gifts. If you use coffee cans, they need to be clean and then greased with shortening and flour. Only fill them 1/2 full and bake for about 45 min. It makes 3 small coffee cans per recipe....also, cool completely in coffee cans before removing. Wrap in saran wrap and then colored tissue paper, gather at the top, and then use curling ribbon to tie off. Very nice gift for any occasion.
I needed a recipe to bake a sheet cake for a birthday party. I baked this cake and baked another cake from scratch. I conducted a "taste test" with co-workers and this cake got every vote! It is so light and has a wonderful flavor!
Absolutely fantastic! My coworkers love it; it also makes a terrific base for coffee cake, or substitute rum for the water, and you have a rum cake worthy of RAVES! (My coworkers couldn't get enough of this!)
