You won't believe how good this is. Just toss away the packages and tell them you made the cake from scratch!


1 18.25-oz box yellow cake mix
1 Egg
lemon extract
1 small box vanilla pudding mix; (not instant)
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Chocolate Glaze
3 tablespoons Cocoa
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
1 cup confectioner's sugar; sifted
2 tablespoons Boiling water

Original recipe makes 8



Mist an 8-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Bake the cake in prepared pan according to directions on box, adding an additional egg and lemon extract to batter.

Let cake cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.

Prepare pudding according to directions on box, using 1 1/2 cups milk and adding vanilla extract. When pudding is ready and still hot, cover with plastic wrap to prevent skin from forming. Refrigerate until chilled.

Split cake into two layers, cover one layer with pudding and replace the top layer.

Make glaze. Blend all ingredients in mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. Glaze only the top layer of the cake. This cake must be kept refrigerated.

Although it's from a "box", it's sure to win the hearts and taste buds of those who are lucky enough to have it shared with them. I make 3.5" individual cakes that are always a hit...and easy and convenient way to share. When you bake, never forget the most important ingredient , LOVE !!!

Sorry, This taste like something out of a box. Oh...that's right it is. It is very convenient and not bad if you need a quick desert. Gourmet it is not. Next time I make a Boston Cream Pie I will make it from scratch. Betty has a good yellow cake recipe and I have my grandmothers homemade vanilla pudding recipe that can't be beat. The icing is convenient and good and I will use that again. For people who use the convenience of box food I would recommend this as not bad. Thus the 3 stars.
