At first glance, this is just another yellow sheet cake with chocolate frosting, but beneath that unassuming layer of rich chocolate frosting is a sweet, buttery, perfectly moist yellow cake filled with pockets of cool and creamy vanilla pudding.
Updated Jun 30, 2017

Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ yellow cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box

Filling

  • 1 box (4-serving size) Jell-O™ vanilla-flavored instant pudding & pie filling mix
  • 2 cups milk

    In large bowl, make cake batter as directed on box. Pour into pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes.
  • 3
    With handle of wooden spoon (1/4- to 1/2-inch in diameter), poke holes almost to bottom of cake every 1/2 inch, wiping spoon handle occasionally to reduce sticking.
