Notes

  • Look for cake mixes that say they have pudding added. Aldi's brand has pudding-in-the-mix, as does Betty Crocker and Pillsbury. If you can't find one with pudding, regular cake mix works too.
  • Substitute white cake mix, lemon cake mix or any other options for a fun new spin on these sunrise loaves.
  • Chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or chopped nuts would be a great addition to this quick bread using cake mix recipe. 
  • The sugar on top can burn, so be sure to check the loaves around the 30 minute mark in the oven. 
  • Freeze and Serve Instructions: Place cooled loaves in freezer bags and place in freezer. To serve, thaw at room temperature or put a frozen slice into the toaster.
