Cooking Thursday

A few weeks ago I shared a picture of some orange bread I had made, and I told you that if it was good I would share the recipe.  Well - it was very good, so today I have the recipe for you.
I got this recipe from my sister-in-law.  The nice thing about this recipe is that it's so flexible; you can make about any flavor you want because the base is a cake mix.  It makes a very moist bread, and everyone that has tasted it, likes it.

 Orange Bread

Strawberry Bread

Cake Mix Bread
1 package dry cake mix, flavor of your choice
1 3.4 ounce package instant pudding mix, flavor to go with the cake mix
1/2 cup oil
1 cup water
4 eggs
Mix all ingredients together.   Pour into 2 greased 8x4 inch loaf pans.
Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.  Allow to cool and drizzle with powdered sugar glaze if desired.

*Possible combinations:
Orange cake mix with vanilla pudding
lemon cake mix with vanilla pudding
strawberry cake mix with banana pudding
chocolate cake mix with chocolate pudding

That looks good. I've had that before but never had the recipe, thanks for sharing.

This seems like an excellent and delicious treat to take to a pot-luck event! Thanks for the recipe! Yum.

Betsy Brock said...

Orange would be a nice change!

Linda Eller said...

Sounds good, looks good, and I saved the recipe. Thank you.

Deb said...

This sounds great! I am going to have to give it a try! Thanks for sharing.

Bethany Carson said...

That does look very good! I guess a bread made with cake mix couldn't be bad!

Thanks for sharing this recipe Mari. I remember making this back when I was in high school and I had lost the recipe somewhere. We would do orange, lemon or lime, depending on our craving!!

HOOTIN ANNI said... continue to make me drool!! Not only those apple roses [which I told Bud about], now you have this bread?!!! And the different combinations are all making me salivate!!! The flavors...well, all I can say is yum.

Jenni said...

I assume you use instant pudding?

Mari said...

Jenni - yes, it's instant pudding!

Sally said...

Yum! Maybe even I could make that. LOL

Hi Mari, Thanks so much for the easy recipe. I would love orange or strawberry especially. When John and I first married, I made a cake (white mix) that used pistachio instant pudding. It was one of his favorites and is a light green once baked.
