6 Ingredient Cake Batter Pie

The filling is a super easy and is made with vanilla pudding, yellow cake mix, and Cool Whip. It’s cold, creamy, and tastes like birthday cake but as a pie instead.

Don’t forget the sprinkles! For this recipe, I prefer to use Rainbow Jimmies because they don’t dissolve like other sprinkles do. So, if you don’t use them just be sure to use another kind of high-quality sprinkles.

You can make the crust from scratch or buy one at the store to make it really easy and it pretty much goes with anything. I’ve made it with my:

How to Make No Bake Pudding Pie

Chill the pie crust while you prepare the filling.

Make the pudding by combining instant vanilla pudding with nonfat milk until it’s smooth and creamy. Whisk in the cake mix. You will use the dry cake mix (not batter!). This is what gives the pudding the birthday cake flavor.

Fold in half of the whipped topping and then fold in half of the sprinkles. Pour the filling into the chilled crust. Spread the rest of the Cool Whip over the top of the filling.

If you are not serving the pie right away, refrigerate it and then sprinkle the rest of the sprinkles over the top just before you serve it.

A Few Tips!

The pie is a lot easier to slice when it’s been chilled so I recommend making it a few hours in advance. It’s not absolutely necessary, but the pudding will have more time to set up when it’s cold.

You know how I love my rainbow sprinkles, but you can use your favorite colors or match the sprinkles to the holiday or event

Remember, for the cake mix you don’t need to make the batter – just measure ¼ cup of the dry cake mix and add it directly to the filling. It’s the key in getting that perfect birthday cake flavor.

Leftover pie will keep in the refrigerator for two days. Just keep it covered!

  1. I followed the recipe to a tee and my filling is watery. I think this would work if you prepared the pudding according to the box. If you don’t heat your pudding it never thickens.

    1. You need to use instant pudding. There is no heat necessary for instant pudding – did you use cooked pudding by any chance?

  2. Is it safe to use dry cake mix in a non cooked dessert? It has flour in it and flour needs to be cooked because it can harbor harmful bacteria. Is the flour in the mix cooked?

    1. Honestly, I don’t know how the makers of the cake mix treat the flour, but if that is something you’re worried about I suggest skipping it. Add 1/2 tsp butter extract and 1/2 tsp vanilla to the pudding and it will taste more like cake batter without the cake mix.
