My mom passed away in 1991 and my sisters and I have wished we had some of her recipes. We really missed her water cake, fried corn, augratin potatoes and a few others. The other day my sister came across this recipe and scanned it to send me a copy. This is so good and though you put them in order of cake mix on the bottom and topping on top, once it bakes the pudding is on the bottom and cake on top. It is DELISH! Gonna save it here where I know I can find it if I loose my copy. Enjoy
