This has always been a favorite of mine. My mom used to make it all the time and now I make it quite often. Especially if we're having company for dinner. Everybody loves it. I always add some pecans or walnuts in it.

The dessert was not hard to make, however, it is more just a cake than a pudding cake. The texture and flavor of the small amount of moist cake there was on the bottom was not that of any kind of pudding that I am familiar with. With a little work this could be a very good recipe.

Easy to follow instructions and it is the recipe that I have been looking for. I lost my mother's recipe and I am so thankful that I found your recipe. Perfect textures, the creamy pudding, on the bottom, nice amount of cake on the top. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. My mom always served it with vanilla ice cream and I served it that way tonight.
