100 Hole Cake – Grateau de cent troses

10 servings

Note:  This recipe was handed down to my mom from her hairdresser, Miss Lottie.  I remember as a child going with momma to the hairdressers.  I don’t actually remember ever tasting this…that’s not to say my mom never made it…I was such a picky eater as a child.   I know I never made it…but it sure sounds good.

1 Pkg. instant lemon pudding

4 eggs

¾ cup vegetable oil

Mix the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil with an electric mixer until well blended (do not over heat).  Be sure to use a high grade oil.

 2 Tbsp. melted butter
