What size of pudding mix, large or small?

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
When a recipe doesn't give a specific size for an ingredient you should use the "most common" size. In this case, the smaller size pudding is the one you see with more flavors available, more shelf space, etc at the store.

I made this cake and it was a hit. Perfect for summer! I used a yellow cake mix and followed the directions on the box. Then I poked holes with a knife handle. Then I used chunk pineapple that I blended to make crushed and poured juice and all over the cake. I had a french vanilla pudding mix which I used and a whole 8oz carton of cool whip. My family loved it! It tasted better after refridgerating a few hours as well. Yummy!! It has become a staple dessert for my house. It was super easy thanks!
