Seven Minutes in Heaven Cake


Yіеldѕ: 10 – 12 

Tоtаl Tіmе: 3 hоurѕ 0 mіnѕ



  • 1 box angel food cake
  • 2 boxes instant chocolate pudding (plus required ingredients)
  • 4 c. heavy cream
  • 1/4 tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • chocolate shavings




Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare boxed cake mix according to package instructions. Pour about two-thirds of mixture into a 9”-x-13” (ungreased) baking pan. Bake until slightly golden, about 25-30 minutes. Let cool.

When the cake is cool, poke big holes across entire surface of the cake using the rounded end of the wooden spoon. Combine pudding mix and milk in a medium bowl and whisk until the mixture just begins to thicken. Pour over the cake and spread with a spatula to make sure the pudding pours into the holes. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Make whipped cream: In a large bowl, combine the heavy cream with the sugar and vanilla extract and beat until stiff peaks form. Spread over cake and garnish with chocolate shavings.

  1. What do you do with the rest of the cake batter? Your instructions say to spread 2/3 of the cake mixture into a pan…. Just curious.
