Cupboard cake

Last night I was really craving chocolate cake. I had cake mix, frosting, oil and water (of course) but only two eggs. The recipe called for three.

Instead of trying my luck with just two eggs, I searched online for other ways to make a cake without using eggs.

I found a Yahoo! discussion on how to substitute not just the eggs, but the water and oil with pudding.

Well, I had instant pudding in the cabinet (white chocolate flavor) and milk in the fridge, so I decided to give it a go.

I made the pudding by mixing the powder with 2 cups of cold milk. Then I combined the liquid pudding with the cake mix. It'll look kind of like brown sludge, but at least you can lick the spoon without worrying about getting sick!

Oven should be set to 350 degrees. Grease your pan and put the mix in. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on how your oven works (ours gets too hot, so I only cooked it for 20 minutes).

Well, the cake turned out DELICIOUS, and I didn't have to run out to the store with money from our change jar just because I was short an egg.
