18 Recipes with Vanilla Pudding

Vanilla pudding is one of those kitchen staples that are simple in all the best ways. Picky eaters will eat it, it tastes delicious by itself or in a recipe, it’s easy to make, and for many of us, it’s nostalgic. For those reasons and more, we’ve made a list of 18 Recipes with Vanilla Pudding to remind you of just how versatile it is.

Starting with cakes with vanilla pudding, then cookies, and finishing off with some no bake vanilla pudding desserts, this list has something for everyone.

Some of these recipes call for instant pudding mix to be mixed in with batter, which means you won’t be able to taste it as clearly as some other recipes. If you want a recipe with the distinctive taste and texture of vanilla pudding, a good rule of thumb is if you can see pudding in the recipe picture, you’ll be able to taste it!
 

Cakes with Vanilla Pudding

This wide variety of cakes utilizes the vanilla pudding to stay moist and delicious; none of these cakes are in danger of being dry! Some use more vanilla pudding than others, such as the Heavenly Cloud Cake, which has thick layers of pudding, versus the vanilla cupcakes, which just use the instant pudding mix for texture. There's a cake in this list for everyone, so find which one is speaking to you.
