Use for instant pudding mix?
Recently I bought a package of instant vanilla pudding mix to use for Nanaimo bars. I only used a few tablespoons and now have half the box yet. The idea of making instant pudding isn't particularly appealing to me -- anyone have any recipe suggestions that would use it up?
Never had it but read about mixing it with cool whip for a lighter (healthwise) frosting for a cupcake. Although it seems a little like that Recombinant cuisine we were talking about earlier.
There are lots of 1970s cake recipes that call for boxed cake mix and instant pudding. Even if it's an already added pudding cake mix, a little more only makes it better.
One I make quite often (by request!) is Black Russian cake, which calls for devils food plus instant chocolate pudding. And of course vodka and kahlua!
Probably wouldn't matter if it was vanilla really.
But for vanilla pudding, I would buy a graham cracker or premade Nilla wafer pie shell, put a few banana slices on the bottom, make the pudding as directed for pies and then top off with some real whipped cream.
Add it to a cake batter since you don't have much left.
But when we're in the mood for dirty desserts we make
Graham cracker & pudding icebox cake
Layers of chocolate & vanilla pudding typically with graham crackers layered btwn the flavors. Chilled and sliced. Comfort food.
Light and lemony cake with lemon instant pudding, whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs between the layers.
