My parents made this when I was little and now I make this for my family. We also have made it with graham cracker crust and banana pudding for banana cream dessert and have made oreo dessert out of it by making an oreo crust with 1 lb of oreos, crushed and 1/4 c margarine, melted.Press into bottom of pan and let sit until cool before you add other layers. They make good no bake options. It also helps to cool all layers completely before adding next layer. We sometimes stick it in the freezer to speed it along.
There was just nothing special about this. It was more like just eating chocolate pudding with whipped cream, not like a cake at all.
my grandma has been making this for years and it is our family favorite. it is soooo good, you'll want to eat the whole pan. we've always topped it with chopped nuts, but i like the idea of chocolate shavings on top! i just made two pans yesterday and topped them with fall leaves sprinkles for the thanksgiving holiday.this is the best dessert in the whole world!!! oh and just a tip - don't use skim milk, it's too watery and will make your crust soggy - speaking from experience. use at least 2% - thats what i usually use.
I have been making this excellent, tasty dessert recipe for years. On occasion I will make two slight changes. When mixing the instant pudding and milk together, I add two teaspoons of instant coffee granuals to give it a mocha flavor and use pecans instead of walnuts. Either way you prefer, it is always a winner in our family, especially for the "chocoholics".
Tasted great... not exactly the taste i remember from my friends pudding cake, but it will do for now until i find her recipe!
A big hit for Father's Day, but I really could not taste the cream cheese layer. Next time I will double that layer only. Otherwise, very good.
cant go wrong with this recipe!
My Mom has made this recipe for years, and I just love it!!! I have to rate it 4 stars because it ALWAYS seems that it takes me three times as long to back the crust as directed. Who knows...could be my crazy oven. But other than that...fabulous and definitely a crowd pleaser!
