When I was a kid I remember buying a pudding cake mix and when I made it, it came out partially as cake with much of the pudding either rising to the top or falling to the bottom, I forget. Anyway, it was a gooey chunk of heaven.

That mix is not available in my supermarket, or they have stopped making it.

So, I go online and check out recipes for pudding cake using mixes. They are pretty much the same:

cake mix
small pudding mix
4 eggs
1/4 to 1/3 cu oil
1 or 1 1/2 cu water

I used the 1/3 oil and 1 cup water.
What came out was a good, very moist, but otherwise normal cake. No gooey mess of pudding.

Does anyone have any idea of what I should do to get a real pudding cake? Should I use a large box of pudding and add more water?

I used medium eggs, Betty C Moist mix, Jello pudding, vegetable oil. I mixed the wet ingredients separately and the dry separately and then combined and mixed again.

Thank you for any thoughts you might throw my way.

It's actually a pic from the "net" of a cupcake, but needed to show example.

HERSHEY'S | Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

You need to look up "Hot Fudge Pudding Cake" that is how you will get the pudding like consistency at the bottom of the cake. It is from the hot water and brown sugar, with the cocoa added to the cake that makes that fudgey, pudding layer in the bottom.

Oh, I was looking for a cake mix plus pudding mix and which other ingredients to get the separation as it bakes, but thanx for your input.

That's it, I think. I'll google it. Thanx.
I don't want chocolate, though.

Betty Crocker has a Decadent Supreme
Chocolate Molten Lava mix, but the ones I used to get were different flavors.

I've added pudding mix to cake mix many times. It just makes the cake moist, It doesn't turn gooey or pudding-y.

It makes you wonder why the cake mix manufacturers don't put those pudding ingredients inside the mix to begin with.
