    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.

    In medium bowl, beat pudding mix and milk with whisk 45 to 60 seconds or until slightly thickened but still pourable. Carefully pour over cake; spreading evenly over surface. Work back and forth to fill holes, tapping pan lightly on counter several times. Refrigerate 2 hours.
  • 5
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave frosting uncovered on High 15 to 30 seconds or until slightly warmed and thinner consistency. Quickly spread evenly on top of cake up to edges; refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. To serve, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • For best success with this recipe, be sure to use a 15x10-inch pan with at least a 1-inch rim so there is less risk of cake batter spilling over while baking.
