  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  2. Mix yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding mix, milk, vegetable oil, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Pour half the batter into the prepared casserole dish; spread evenly.
  3. Stir brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon together in a bowl; sprinkle over batter in the casserole dish. Pour remaining batter over walnut mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

this was very good and extremely sweet. Totally easy to make. My family loved it. I would put a finer chop on the walnuts. The walnut mixture was totally delish and the whole recipe turned out w...

Absolutely incredible recipe. I only had French vanilla instant pudding as opposed to just straight vanilla so I don't know if that changed things, but if it did it was worth it. Plus I didn't ...

This was pretty good. A very easy recipe to satisfy a sweet tooth craving! I also thought the top was a little bare so I made a thin icing glaze (about 1/4 cup of confectioners sugar, a dash of ...

Great recipe! New Year's Day I found this recipe. Only had butterscotch pudding and white cake mix. Made it anyway and it was a hit! Thank you for making me look like I know what I'm doing. Lo...

I put some of the brown sugar and cinnamon on top as well and it looks awesome!
