This is a recipe from my mum. She made me a cookbook of favourite recipes when I left home. Her note is, 'this is handy when you don't have an egg in the house and you need something other than jelly for dessert'.
OMG Have made this twice this week.. never again packet pudding as was so easy and quick to make. My only suggestion is to definitely double the receipe for 4 adults and 3 children.. no left overs - 24 Jun 2011
I misplaced my recipe for this dessert, so I tried this one. It's very good, a couple of different steps than my mom's (adding the milk & butter), but it still tastes the same. *I made this a 2nd time, only changing a couple things, and it came out even better, I think! I added 1 tsp vanilla, 2 Tbl coffee granules to 2 Cups water, baked at 325' for 40 mins. - 14 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was awesome! I did change one thing: Instead of pouring hot water on top, I poured freshly brewed coffee. This made the cake have such a fantasic flavor. I can't wait to have it again. - 21 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
