Almond Crusted Creamy Pudding Cake is a cake recipe you will come back to time after time. This chocolate pudding cake is creamy and completely craveable. This is definitely a dessert that's as easy as it is delicious! No-bake desserts are some of our very favorites because of their simplicity, but also because you can make one any time of year in just minutes. This cake is nearly no bake -- meaning you just have to bake the crust, but only for 15 minutes, so it's not a huge undertaking! While we love chocolate, this recipe can easily be transformed into the flavor of your choice with just a slight adjustment of the pudding mix!


  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 1 package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 containers whipped topping
  • 2 small packages (3.4-ounce) chocolate instant pudding
  • 3 cups cold milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. For the bottom layer (or crust) of this cake, combine flour, sugar, almonds and butter.  Mix to create a crumble mixture. Press into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Bake 10-15 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely.

  3. While cooling, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until very smooth. Fold in 1/2 container of whipped topping until fully incorporated. Spread over cooled crust.

  4. Mix pudding mixes with cold milk, whisking for several minutes. Allow to thicken slightly, and then fold in remaining whipped topping. Spread over the cream cheese layer. 

  5. Cut into squares to serve. Keep refrigerated.

This looks really yummy. I love pudding cakes and all things almond-flavored. What a great idea!

This looks absolutely delectable. I really enjoy the combination of chocolate and almonds and this easy-to-assemble cake just manages to hit all the right notes for me. I'd be tempted to try this out with some other types of nuts. I would think that peanuts might also work very well for this cake. I'd also sprinkle some chopped peanuts or slivered almonds on top as a garnish. I do want to try this one out soon.

this just has everything good in it--sugar, almonds, butter, pudding, Cool Whip, cream cheese! I would probably keep licking the spoon (just for a sample), until half of it was gone!
