Moist Cake Mix Hack

Using this baking hack, you can make this cake using a cake mix and no one will ever guess you started with a mix.

Add vanilla, whole eggs, and vanilla pudding to your cake mix. It will change your cake mix to more of an off-white rather than pure white, but believe me, it will be worth it. Think “winter-white”.

You can prepare the pudding or just use it dry. It’s up to you. Either will work. I made instant pudding for this cake.

After those cakes go in the oven, it’s time to make the important part – the filling and frosting.
