How to make sure your cake will be moist? The answer is simple, put instant pudding mix into the batter. Yes, it's that simple! All of you have probably seen the ready cake mix with big print "SUPER MOIST- WITH PUDDING in the MIX". And the most wonderful thing about instant pudding mix is that it comes in so many different flavors. What is also so wonderful about instant pudding mix is that they come in all the beautiful colors of rainbow, too. I chose vanilla and chocolate because they are the most popular in our house. But hey, wouldn't  it be great to make a pistachio and banana cake?

(for printable recipe click here)

4 eggs
4 dL sugar
6 dL all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
4 tsp vanilla
2 dL milk
6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (you can use olive or vegetable oil)
1 small packet vanilla instant pudding mix
1 small packet chocolate instant pudding mix
1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted

Preheat oven to 350*F. Oil and flour dust an angel food cake form.

With an electric mixer, mix eggs and sugar until white and fluffy. Mix flour with baking powder and add the mix to the egg mixture. Add melted butter and fold. Divide the cake batter into two equal portions. Add vanilla instant pudding mix to one part and chocolate instant pudding mix and cocoa powder to the other half.
Pour chocolate batter into angel food cake form first, than carefully spread the vanilla batter over it.

Bake on the middle rack for 40 - 50 minutes. I always check my cake after 30 minutes, so I can cover it with aluminum foil  to prevent over browning.

After the cake is done, let it cool for10 minutes, take it out if the cake form, and let it cool completely on a cookie rack.

Garnish and serve in your preferred way and enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea.
