First, there are many things wrong with the recipe. Mostly, you need 2 boxes (1.5 ounces ea.) of pudding for the cake. End result, cake was tasty, but filling was nothing like that inside a twinkie. Very greasy and not at all light and fluffy. Too bad. If you do decide to try this, please do this: when you refrigerate the flour & milk mixture, cover it with plastic wrap otherwise it makes a skin that then becomes lumps in the filling. Good luck
