Caramel Pudding Cake – a warm layer of cake on top with a delicious layer of caramel on the bottom. Only 4 ingredients and made using Truvia Brown Sugar Blend!
Well, what do we have here? Pudding cake?
Why yes, yes we do. Be still my heart!
Pudding cake is one of my all time favorite desserts. My mom makes this ridiculously awesome chocolate pudding cake that was always my fave when I was a kid. But have you had caramel pudding cake?
In a nutshell, it’s a layer of moist, butterscotch cake baked over a layer of warm caramel goodness. When served with a scoop of ice cream, you get the cake, the ice cream AND the caramel to pour over the top! It’s just crazy amazing. Oh, and only 4 main ingredients!
AND this caramel pudding cake is made with a little secret ingredient: NEW Truvia Brown Sugar Blend!!!!
New Truvia Brown Sugar Blend has 75% fewer calories than regular brown sugar but has the same EXACT flavor and texture of regular brown sugar. For reals.
It really has blown me away. It’s my new fave go-to ingredient when I’m baking.

- 3/4 c. Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
- 2 c. water
- 1/4 c. coconut oil
- 2 c. Bisquick baking mix
- 1 c. Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
- 1 c. milk
- Preheat oven to 350º F. In a medium saucepan, combine 3/4 cup Truvia Brown Sugar Blend, water and coconut oil. Heat to boiling. Pour into a 2 quart casserole dish or a 9x13" pan.
- In another bowl, mix Bisquick, Truvia and milk. Pour this over the liquid already in the cake pan - do NOT stir together! Just bake for 30 mins (9x13") or a bit longer for the 2 quart pan, about 45 minutes, or until the cake part at the top is cooked through.
- (Will have a delicious layer of ooey gooey caramel at the bottom of the pan with a warm cake on the top)
- Serve with light vanilla ice cream or fozen yogurt. Enjoy!

Sounds like such a fun contest! I would enter if I didn’t so much going on these next few months.
Your caramel pudding cake looks divine. I could go for a big ol’ warm slice to accompany my coffee.
This time of year is ridiculously busy, right Jen?! Happy Friday!!
Melanie @ Carmel Moments says
Mmm…I’ve never made a pudding cake. Looks delicious! Of course everything with caramel is awesome!
You just can’t go wrong with caramel! Thanks Melanie!
Sarah @ The Gold Lining Girl says
Oh cool – I was not aware Truvia has a brown sugar blend now. That’s great to know! This cook looks so ooey, gooey, and delicious. I love warm desserts w/ ice cream. I dig the hot/cold thing. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
Thanks for stopping by, Sarah! Nothing better than a warm dessert with ice cream! Happy Friday!
Sarah @ The Gold Lining Girl says
Oops. I meant “cake”. Haha. You too! TGIF!!
Ilona @ Ilona's Passion says
I heard about Truvia, but honestly I haven’t tried yet.. I am just scared it will taste like aspartame that I hate. I think I should read more about Truvia:)
Great recipe and I love you Blog:)
It really doesn’t taste like aspartame! It’s made from stevia, so it’s much healthier than other sugar substitutes. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!

Andi @ The Weary Chef says
Jen, this looks AMAZING!! I have only tried one pudding cake, and it was mocha flavored. The butterscotch looks so good. Can’t wait to try it!
Jaren (Diary of a Recipe Collector) says
Oh my goodness! This looks so delish!
Wow, this pudding cake looks amazing Jen! I love all that dripping caramel – totally calling my name! I can’t think of anything better than this right now with a scoop of ice cream – yum 🙂
Chloe Crabtree says
This sounds like it will be delicious, and I am all for a treat that might have a little less “real” sugar in it! I haven’t ever made a pudding cake, or a caramel cake! Such wonderful tastes and textures together!
Is there a way to make this using real brown sugar? I don’t have a problem with the calories and I prefer real ingredients
Hi Maggie! I totally understand. You can just double the amount called for for the Truvia in the recipe and use brown sugar instead. So the recipe calls for 3/4 cup Truvia, so use 1.5 cups light brown sugar instead. Let me know how it turns out!
