I think I may try this though and just use the 3 Tbsp of pudding like I usually do.
Wanted to say a HUGE thank you for posting this recipe, Spooky!!
So THANKS Swishtrish!!
Also, I have made this cake using the store brand (18.25 oz) cake mixes that do not have pudding in them. They worked just fine. Late last week, I added about 3 T. instant french vanilla pudding to a double batch of this recipe. I can't say that it really made a difference one way or the other. I think I'll just leave it out.
This recipe makes a lot of batter. I doubled it, thinking I'd have just enough, and I ended up making 60 cupcakes and an 8" round (3" deep) layer out of it. Way more than I needed (40 cupcakes).
Definitely use cake flour as that is what aids in the lightness of it.
