  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 container Vanilla snack pack pudding, 3.25 oz
  • 1 Yellow cake mix


  • 1 cup Homemade vanilla pudding


  • 1 cup Chocolate ganache, Use 1:1 ratio (1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup heavy cream)

  • Grease and flour two round cake pans with dimensions of 8×2. Pour the batter evenly into the two pans.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and bake the cakes for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
