Luscious and lemony; molten and moist; pudding and cake - this warm dessert has it all. There's no need to reheat leftovers - this cake is also delicious as a cold treat. The lemon filling transforms from saucy and gooey to thick and custard-like. Yummy!


1 package Yellow cake mix; (2 layer size)
2 cups Cold milk
1/4 cups Water
2 4-oz packages Jello lemon flavor instant pudding & pie filling
1/3 cup Sugar; granulated
2 tablespoons Sugar; powdered

Original recipe makes 16



Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Prepare cake mix as directed on package. Pour batter into greased 13 X 9 inch baking dish.

Pour milk and water into large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes and granulated sugar. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Pour over cake batter in dish. Place baking dish on baking sheet to catch drippings, as mixture does bubble.

Bake 55 min. to 1 hr. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 20 min. (Mixture will thicken slightly as it cools.) Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Spoon onto serving dishes. Serve warm; garnish with raspberries, if desired.

Makes: 16 servings.

NOTE: I tried this with lemon cake mix and also added a lemon glaze which was very good , if you like lemon a lot.


Prep: 15 min. Total: 1 hour, 35 min.

I made this cake last night with a couple of tweaks...I only had 2 small pkgs of lemon pudding so I also used 1 sm pkg of vanilla as well. I did use yellow cake mix and drizzled w/ a lemon glaze after cooling. It was done after only 40 mins. The top came out with cracks on it but my husband nor I mind at all. It is delicious, especially warm so the pudding loosens up. I will definitely make this again...with the correct amount of all lemon pudding.

I needed a quick dessert for company. I made this very simple cake and everyone raved! Super easy and super delicious. I think next time I will try it with vanilla pudding.
