1970's Packaged Pudding Cake Mix?

Does anyone remember a packaged pudding cake mix from the 1970's?
I have been on a quest for the name and maker for over 20 years. My family loved it. I could have sworn it was a Jiffy Mix but I wrote to them and they said no. There were two flavors. Choloclate and Lemon. It was packaged in small jiffy mix sized boxes. You mixed the cake batter, poured some sort of packaged powder on top, and then poured hot water on top of the powder. tried. This one had definate pudding on the bottom of the pan that stayed like pudding for a couple of days before it was absorbed by the cake. Does anyone remember this? What brand it might have been? If not does anyone have a great recipie for either of these pudding cakes. I've tried several scratch recipies, but they're just not the sam.

You are almost right. You used the Jiffy chocolate cake mix and the Jiffy chocolate icing mix. Unfortunately, at least around here, neither are available. The recipe was on the side of one of the boxes. I just checked... I have to drive 100 miles to get the chocolate cake mix.

Whoops-- found the recipe!!!!
JIFFY CHOCOLATE PUDDING CAKE

1 pkg Jiffy Dark Fudge or Devil's Food Cake mix
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1 pkg Jiffy Fudge Frosting mix
1 1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup margarine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.

Blend cake mix, egg and water. Spread in prepared pan.

In saucepan, heat frosting mix, milk and margarine together. When hot, carefully pour mixture over batter in pan.

Bake in preheated 350 F oven for 30-35 minutes. Serve warm.

Servings: 6

Thanks all for the welcome. And THANK YOU Jeff G for the receipe. I do believe you're right about the recipe being on the side of the box. I don't remember the exact ingredients you mention in the recipie. I remember simply putting the dry pudding mix on top of the cake batter then pouring hot water over it but it 30+ years ago that I made it. My son is tickled because it was his favorite too. Thanks again!!

I do remember the pudding cake mixes, but for the life of me can't remember the manufacturer. Could it have been Betty Crocker?
