While surfing some great desserts on Pinterest, I got the idea to try an experiment of my own. And this is what I got:
The Banana Cream Pudding Cake
Want to try making your own? These are the ingredients you’ll need for this super easy recipe!
*1 box of yellow cake mix
(and whatever ingredients your cake mix calls for)
*1 box of Nilla Wafers (you won’t use the whole box)
*Banana Cream Instant Pudding – 1 small box and 1 large box
*5 Cups of milk for the pudding mix
Step 1 – Make your cake according to the directions on the box.
Step 2 – When done cooking let your cake cool for 15 minutes.
Step 3 – Use the end of a wooden spoon and poke a ton of holes in your cake.

Step 4 – Mix all of your pudding in a big bowl. I like to stir it for the 2 minutes the box says to stir and then pour it onto the cake. MAKE SURE to pour into the individual holes before dumping the rest on your cake. This will allow the pudding to soak into the cake. YUM! This is what it will look like when you’ve poured the pudding on (heads up, you may have a tad extra pudding, you don’t have to pour it all on the cake if you don’t want to but I enjoy a thicker layer of pudding on the top!)
Step 5 – Pop the cake in to the fridge for an hour to let the pudding ‘set’.
Step 6 – Take half the box of Nilla Wafers and crumble them. I did this by putting them into a big Ziploc bag and crushing them by hand (very easy since they are soft wafers).
Step 7 – Take the cake out of the fridge and scatter the Nilla Wafers on top of the cake to your liking. Then put the cake back in the fridge for another hour.
Step 8 – Eat! I found that the longer you leave it in the fridge to cool and soak up the pudding = the better!
|Like I said earlier…bland colors…but delicious!|
*You can modify this recipe by trying different cake flavors, different puddings, and different toppings for endless possibilities. What other combos would you try???
