Frequently Asked Questions

What If I Don’t Have An Instant Pudding Mix?

You don’t have to add it, but the cake won’t be as moist. Add ¼ cup more flour to stabilize the batter.

How Do I Check If The Cake Is Done?

Insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean (without wet batter), the cake is done.

What’s The Best Way To Mix Cream Cheese And Oil?

Make sure the cream cheese is soft and at room temperature. Use a hand-held or stand mixer to combine the oil with the cream cheese. If the mixture is not smooth and creamy, don’t worry.

What Can I Use If I Don’t Have A Bundt Pan?

You can use an 8×8-inch pan, loaf pan, tube pan, round cake pan, or any deep baking dish.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?

Yes, you can. Add them frozen, not thawed so they don’t turn the batter blue.

How Do I Prevent The Cake From Sticking To The Pan?

Grease and flour the entire pan to prevent the cake from sticking.

Can I Make This Cake With Other Berries?

Absolutely! You can use mixed berries or chopped strawberries.
