Tips

If you find you tend to over cook or have dry cakes ( i know hard to do with duncan hines) add a little chocolate pudding to a chocolate cake mix or applesauce to a yellow cake mix yummy!!!


instant pudding vs. cook & serve

instant pudding vs. cook & serve

I have seen several rum cake recipes. Some call for instant pudding and some call for cook and serve. Aside from the two different types of pudding all the remaining ingredients are the same. Does anybody know what the difference is between instant and cook and serve pudding and how it affects the cake?
