Bake Cake in a 9 x 13 inch pan according to box directions. This cake can be made from scratch also. “Homemade Yellow Cake Mix”.

When the pudding starts to set pour over the cake. Don’t let the pudding get too stiff it needs to run down into the holes.
Set in refrigerator for around 20 minutes to let the pudding set.
