Red Velvet Pudding Cake

Sounds weird, doesn't it? Heck no! It sounds DELICIOUS! And it was pretty good. The great folks at Kraft printed a recipe a few years back that I thought looked awesome, and of course had to tweak because the hubz just doesn't like anything lemon. So with that being said, it resulted in banana chocolate pudding cake, and this little number - The red velvet pudding cake. Thanks for the inspiration Kraft!

This recipe is so easy to tweak and make your own. I highly suggest you getting into your kitchen and coming up with all sorts of tasty combinations. I have a list that I can't wait to try :) You can find the original recipe on the Kraft website, Just search for warm winter lemon cake. I made a few changes for personal preference, to each their own!

Red Velvet Pudding Cake

1 box red velvet cake mix
1/2 C unsalted butter, soft
4 eggs
1 TS pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 C buttermilk

2 small packages jello instant pudding, chocolate flavor
2 C skim milk
1 1/3 C cold water
Powdered Sugar for dusting top, OR do a frosting if you're feeling dangerous

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, Spray a 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray, and set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat together all of the ingredients for the cake. Once smooth pour into baking dish. In another bowl whisk together the pudding, milk, and water for about 2 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Pour pudding mixture over cake batter in pan.

To be on the safe side, place the baking dish on top of a large cookie sheet. It may bubble over! Place into oven, and bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes or until long toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. A long toothpick? Yep, a skewer, what have you. The normal ones are too short, and for me it just doesn't work. Cool 25 minutes on wire rack. Then dust with powdered sugar, or frost if you must. The banana and chocolate pudding cake I did , I frosted with a fudge frosting for a friends birthday. It was amazing. Spoon into serving dishes, best served warm but you could also eat it cold. We just like it warm. If you decide to make this and try different combos, please let me know how they turn out! Happy baking :)
