This sounds wonderful and I can't wait to try it. However, I am confused by the directions in #1. It says to "pour batter into a 9x13 inch pan..." and next it says, "spoon pudding mixture into pan". Are the batter and the pudding the same thing?

it was suppose to say "pour butter into a 9x13 inch pan" so sorry about that Paula, when I get to typing, I go so fast, I forget to look at it over again,lol. But its suppose to say butter and not batter.

LOL............I know what you mean! I do the same thing. Thanks for the quick response and thanks for this wonderful recipe!

Do you set your pan with the pudding in it in a bigger pan with water in it to bake? I have read other recipes that say to do this. Is that necessary? Do you use a metal 9x13 or a glass one and do you think one is better than the other?

Paula, a water bath is never a bad idea. But I am interested in her response because this looks so good! I would use a glass pan.
