Cake Mix Pudding Blender Recipe

Quick side note: Google is ridiculous. Did you know if you search 'cake mix pudding', every result is for cake mixes that contain pudding and recipes on how to add pudding mix to a cake you are baking? When I think of CAKE MIX PUDDING, I want a pudding that tastes like cake mix. If you're like me, you've arrived at the right place.

What's your favorite kind of cake? You can easily turn it into a delicious, no-bake pudding. Cake mix pudding! Just think of all the possibilities: Devil's Food pudding, Red Velvet pudding, Pumpkin pudding, Funfetti pudding, Strawberry pudding...

Here is a quick and easy and SO GOOD dessert recipe that can be made ahead of time for your 4th of July get together. This is a million times better than those boxed Jello Pudding mixes. Think of this as more of a thick custard - you'll actually be able to turn your spoon upside down without your cake mix pudding falling off!

(At least for a little while. I don't want to see any grouchy emails saying your pudding fell off the spoon after an hour.)

You can go simple, throwing a handful of sprinkles on top or piling your pudding high with canned whipped cream. You can go fancy and elaborate, say with fresh chocolate shavings. Folding crushed Oreos into the finished cake mix pudding would be delicious too. 

You can use whatever cake mix you have on hand. Used a Devil's Food cake mix? How about folding in some maraschino cherries? Made your cake mix pudding with vanilla cake mix? Toasted shredded coconut would be a dreamy mix in. The options are endless.

I've made this with Duncan Hines Classic Yellow cake mix and with Betty Crocker Red Velvet cake mix. Both were good, but SN and I both preferred the Classic Yellow because it tasted exactly like birthday cake. I haven't tried this variation yet, but I bet Lemon cake mix would taste like lemon curd, especially if you squeezed in some fresh lemon juice.

Don't be an impatient fool, like me. (Every single time.) This cake mix pudding recipe requires you to get the mixture hot, hot, HOT. I've been known to impatiently eat spoonfuls of this before it cools, injure my mouth, and instantly regret it. Then I eat just one more scalding spoonful. 

You know how you can't feed your dog something hot because it will burn itself? With this hot cake mix pudding, you're going to understand that problem firsthand. 

Actually, no, you are not, because you surely have more self control and patience than this foolish blogger.

To make this cake mix pudding recipe, you'll need a Vitamix, Ninja, Blendtec, or other high-powered blender. Sorry, that $10 blender from Walmart isn't going to be able to handle this recipe. A quality food processor, such as the Breville Sous Chef (we love ours!), also works. 

A Magic Bullet blender can probably do the job, but you may need to reduce the quantity and modify the directions a little.

No fancy blender? No worries! You can still make the most popular recipe on my site of all time, my egg-free cake mix pancakes.

Cake Mix Pudding Recipe
Serves 6 or one sugar-addicted blogger and her husband
  • 16 oz very warm (but not boiling) milk (Feel free to use whatever kind you have on hand. I've even mixed 50% nonfat milk with 50% coconut milk to great results.)
  • 6 egg yolks (Feeling fancy? Save the egg whites to top your custards with meringue and torch them, Baked Alaska-style.)
  • 1/4 C white sugar
  • 1/4 C brown sugar
  • 8 oz cake mix (Approximately 1/2 a box)
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch (Don't simply dump this in - see Step 3.)
Easy Peasy Instructions:

1. Throw all the ingredients except the cornstarch into your blender.

2. Blend, blend, blend! Set a timer for 6 minutes - after whirling around on High, the mixture will be steaming hot. While you wait, mix the cornstarch with 1/4 C cold water.

3. Reduce the blender speed. Remove the Lid Plug (steam should escape - if not, keep blending on high before moving on to this step) and slowly pour in the cornstarch/water mixture while the blender is running. Only add as much as you need - if you used something thick, like whole milk, you'll add less than if you used something watery, like skim milk.

4. Put the Lid Plug back on, return the speed to high, and blend for approximately another minute. Don't step away - the cake mix pudding becomes so thick that my Vitamix can't even blend it!

5. Transfer the hot pudding to the fridge or freezer to cool.

My original Jessner peel post (one of the most popular on my site of all time) is at the beginning. Original Chemical Peel Article Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions. (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!) I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel when we were in Iceland , but my computer led me a different direction. I decided to do this on a whim after Groupon greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal. Now, I can read your mind.

Hello Fresh Complaints

Hello, my bloggy friends. I have a HelloFresh complaint and believe they are pulling a scam. Yours truly came *this close* to falling for it.  Maybe scam is too harsh of a word. Sneaky? You can decide for yourself. The fact that there are so many Hello Fresh complaints online does seem suspicious. My main complaint about Hello Fresh has to do with their promotional rate, which seems like it is set up to be intentionally misleading (more on this below). Despite so many people complaining about being charged more than they thought they'd agreed to, Hello Fresh maintains this as part of their business model and continues to mislead. So it's intentional, right? I do not recommend Hello Fresh. For starters, the service is just ingredients-by-mail with recipes, not meals. You can buy your own ingredients for much less, especially now that most grocery stores conveniently offer pickup and delivery. Excellent recipes are easy to find.  Click here for a list of top-rated, reader-favorit

3 Minute Toaster/Convection Oven Smores

These are perfect when you're craving a quick, sugary treat. They work equally well in a toaster oven and a convection oven. Best of all, compared to eating an entire bag of Oreos (something I have never  done), they're quite healthy. What's that, you say? You already know how to make s'mores in the toaster oven? Well then, sit back and enjoy the ooey-gooey marshmallowy photos. (And if you're someone who works with me, please keep the "I've seen her polish off an entire bag of Oreo cookies" nonsense to yourself.)  Step 1: Put desired amount of graham crackers on a toaster oven/convection oven-safe pan.   Looks like it's time to clean this pan, Sexy Nerd Optional 1st step, which is Sexy Nerd's favorite: Spread peanut butter on each graham cracker (I'm not much of a peanut butter fan - WHAT?!? - so I skip this step.) Cover with yummy marshmallows. Top with chocolate chips. Place in the toaster o

Dental Memes

As the manager of two successful dental offices, my favorite memes are ones I can share with my dentistry dream team.  Happy Team = Living the Dream! You don't have to work in dentistry to enjoy these. After all, everyone is a dental patient. You have visited the dentist within at least the year...right? (No guilt if you haven't! I've scheduled patients who haven't seen a dentist since the 1970s. Dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, and dental administrators have seen it all. We love this field because we love helping our patients. It's never too late to get back on track!) Funny Memes for Dentists Reminder: National Dentist's Appreciation Day is March 6th!

Sending NAKED Emails

Although SN and I started out in a long-distance relationship, with me in New Mexico and him in Michigan, drinking that famous Flint water, we haven't spent much time apart since before our wedding 6 years ago, when I took a family reunion trip to the Seychelles and Paris without him. (He "had to work", but I think the idea of 3 weeks nonstop with my mom terrified him. To be fair, it was pretty scary!) Now, he has been gone on a business trip for nearly 2 weeks and I'm kinda starting to miss him. He says he misses me too. So, I decided to have some fun and send him the following email: Subject: Here are some NAKED photos for you Message: Be sure to delete these after you look at them. The photos, one titled "hubba hubba" and the other "you know you love it": "I ain't afraid to show it, show it, show it, show it." "I'm sexy and I know it." Yep, that is a 100% collar-free, naked Pica . Sexy Nerd&#

Window Seat Idea - Dream Home Inspiration of the Day

See it? Waaay at the back of the photo?  I like how the window seat extends past the window all the way to the wall. How about you? If that's not your style, how about one of these lovely window seats? I'll seat you, my pretty, and your little dog too. How perfect would this be in a home office? I'd swap out that wimpy rug with a larger one.

Anonymous Flower Delivery

Anonymous Flower Delivery Sexy Nerd and I came home from a day of running errands on Saturday to discover an odd message on my phone. It was a girl from a flower shop calling to confirm my address for a delivery.  I called and said there must be a mistake, as I wasn't expecting any flowers, to which she pointed out that people don't usually expect flowers. Oh, of course.  As nice as it would be to have someone send me flowers, it seemed unlikely. Sure enough, she was unable to find any orders for me when I gave my name. She did have a Danielle though, and asked if there might be a different last name. I told her my maiden name. There really were flowers waiting for me!  She confirmed the delivery address - the rental house Sexy Nerd and I lived in 3 years ago. I updated my address and ended the call, anxiously waiting to see who would send me flowers. Who sent me flowers from FTD? My mysterious stalker has beautiful taste! Strange? I had no idea how str
