This recipe has been adjusted from the original. First time I made it, it was so loose that it wouldn't slide off the pan bottom. We ate it anyway and a friend said, "I don't care if it won't slide off, I'll eat "Amaretto Pudding" because it's so good. I did adjust the recipe, second time was perfect and it didn't affect the flavor. Also, I added a layer of whipped cream before adding peaches and almonds
