“I don’t know what to say except… WOW! I’m diabetic so I only took a spoonful to taste … I ended up eating a full serving and more! I had to leave the room or I would probably finished off the whole thing! This is a very light dessert that just melts in your mouth. Box cake mix works better than scratch for this recipe; use your preferred brand…weight doesn’t have to match exactly. As for the syrup, you’ll need about a half bottle of whichever syrup you chose to use. I wasn’t given sizes so there’s a little guesswork in the amounts, sizes and timing. Servings will depend on the amount taken by each person (in my case, 1 serving!) Timing DOES NOT included the cake and pudding preparation.”
