    Ohhhhhhhhh, that sounds sinfully delicious!!

    And I've already thought of a variation. If you're cutting calaries, you could use the sugar free Jello and pudding. :smile:

    I'll have to give it a try.

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    I don't bake much but your recipe is going to be an exception to
    the rule. Thanks for sharing. DDD

    I make a version of that for Christmas every year, but I never thought of using pudding with it. That sounds really good!

    For Christmas I make two white cake layers. Take them out of the pans, line the pans with plastic wrap, then put the layers back in and poke them full of holes with a fork handle or whatever. Mix up one box of lime Jello and one box of raspberry Jello (separately) using about 1-1/2 cups of water instead of two cups like the box says. Pour the lime Jello over one cake layer (still in the pan) and the raspberry over the other and chill until the Jello firms up. When you put it together, frost the top, sides, and between the layers with Cool Whip. It's very pretty for Christmas, and very light - good after a heavy meal.

    I don't know what ever happened to the recipe anymore, but I had a really good one for a pudding cake. You could use any flavors but I always used yellow cake and chocolate pudding. Bake the cake in a 9x13 pan (leave it in the pan) and poke a lot of holes in the cake. The pudding was made according to the directions on the box but had a bit of powdered sugar added, about a half cup, I think. Before the pudding has a chance to thicken up, pour it over the cake and go over it with a spatula so it goes down into the holes in the cake. It will fill the holes and make a half-inch or so layer of pudding on top of the cake. Just put it in the fridge for a while ... WONDERFUL!

    As you can probably tell, I am very in to the "easy" stuff!

    Oooh. You're making me hungry.
    I have white cake and pudding in the pantry...I think tomorrow after work I'm going to go and play in the kitchen and try some of these things out.

    (And tell husband and little easy child that, "Oh no, this one didn't turn out so well. I'll just eat it so it won't go to waste.") :wink:

    Thanks for posting this Jessica.
