Ingredients

Cake:

  • 16.25 ounce cake mix , white or yellow
  • Ingredients to make cake
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Pudding Mix:

  • 5.1 ounce instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 cups cold eggnog*
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Topping:

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven and mix cake batter according to package directions for a 9x13 in baking pan. Add vanilla extract to cake mix.
  2. Bake according to package instructions.
  3. Remove and while cake is still hot, poke many holes in the top. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Prepare eggnog pudding by whipping eggnog into pudding mix (like it was milk). Fold in pumpkin pie spice.
  5. Spread pudding mix over warm cake, allowing it sink into the holes of the cake. Tap lightly on the counter to get it into all the nooks and crannies.
  6. Allow to cool and refrigerate.
  7. Frost with whipped cream and top with crumbled Nilla Wafer cookies.
  8. If you've tried this recipe, come back and let us know how it was!

Recipe Notes

*Most 5. ounce pudding mixes call for 3 cups of liquid, but double check and use as much eggnog as it calls for cold milk.
