Butterscotch Pudding Cake

Sharing is caring!

5 ingredients. 5 minutes prep. You CAN do this. Like right now. This cake is so moist and delicious, I know you will thank me. After having all that heavy chocolate earlier this week thanks to the Valentine’s holiday, my body needed something lighter.

Yes, my body needs sweets. Doesn’t yours?

And this cake didn’t last long in our house, it was gobbled up by all.

*Just a note, this cake is very dense and moist, so don’t be all expecting a flaky, crumbly cake! Instead, enjoy this moist pudding cake!

    This looks so good! I Think I will try it with my favorite whipped cream frosting- You take a quart of whipping cream, whip it up most of the way, then add a small box of pudding mix (in this case i will try butterscotch) and whip it a little longer, and if you keep the cake in the fridge covered, it keeps nice too πŸ™‚
