Years ago a friend made frosting using butter and pudding mix. Does anyone have that recipe?

Thanks, Ginger..but the frosting I remember used dry pudding mix; instant probably. Wish i could find that friend that made it!
Both of those DO use pudding mixes. And butter.
I hada recipe like that....as I recall...you used a cooked pudding mix and cooked it using less milk and added abutter...I think a whole stick...maybe more and powdered sugar....
It was good...the variety I remember was butterscotch...but that was years and years ago.
Thanks again Ginger...you too Linda, but the recipe I remember used dry pudding mix...not cooked. It was creamed with the butter, but I don't know if there were other ingredients.
I know this is not exactly what you're looking for, but perhaps the ingredients & technique could be a starting point.
Pudding Cake Frosting
(by Linda [Reigle] Bauman)
1 - 8oz. Philly cream cheese
1 - 3.9 oz. package any flavor Jell-O instant pudding
1 envelope Dream Whip (DO NOT mix according to directions on package)
1 cup milk
Add all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat until smooth and creamy. Use as frosting on any cake. Keep cake refrigerated.
Rena, I have(had?!) a recipe using the instant pudding - make it up and add it to the shortening/sugar mix..I'll try and dig it up. it's from 20 years ago!! Ginger, the two recipes use the cooked pudding mix..good too!
How about this one?
Butter Cream Icing
1 cup butter (or margerine)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 3.5 oz vanilla instant pudding mix
Cream butter and sugar well.
In another bowl whisk pudding mix into
milk until it begins to thicken.
Add to butter mixture and beat at high
speed about 5 minutes.
I have been looking for more than 20 years for a cooked pudding based frosting - we made it from banana flavor - it was off a Jello box. It used less milk and more sugar- but that is call I can remember. It was fluffy and not from instant and no cool whip. Does anyone have this recipe?
here is a link to one using vanilla pudding...you could use any flavor I would think...
