I'm generally a "from scratch" baker, but I loved this cake. I actually preferred it cold, and plan to make it in the summer often. The only negative was the presentation-- pouring the pudding evenly over the cake was not as easy as it seemed (I'll use the ladel idea next time), and I didn't have high hopes for the cake when I saw it. But some powdered sugar and fresh berries covered that up nicely. Really delicious comfort food. I have a scratch recipe for this, but I'll probably stick with this one, especially when I'm low on time.
