An oldie but goodie, just like me. Good for breakfast, also good as a snack cake (3 loaves).

I needed a dessert in a hurry tonight and I had a blueberry muffin mix and a half of a pudding mix left from the last pudding cake. I halved the rest of the ingredients and baked in in an 8x8 pan for about 10 min less (i don't know exactly) and it turned out great - lovely and moist. Thanks for posting this recipe. Next time I make it I will increase the spices a bit.
