      I'm having a hard time getting off this site. I keep finding just one more recipe to take a look at or print out. I've been on here for hours. I'm finding so much great stuff. Please does anyone know where I can find recipes for the cake that bakes with sauce on the bottom. Your mix the batter, add some flavour stuff, and top with boiling water, bake and get a cake with built in sauce. I'd love to make my own, but can't find a recipe here. Thanks for a great site. Now if I could just leave....there are other things to be done......later.

      I made this mix but the pudding separated in fridge and the kids did not like the texture. But I have used it as an addition to batters like pancake, beer batter, ect. It lightens the texture and it going to used up even if not for pudding.

      I find that Vanilla Beans (although by far the most flavorful and wonderful) are not inexpensive enough for my budget. Even tho' I'd rather be using vanilla beans, could I just compromise with powdered vanilla (also not cheap) in the mix and still get a product that is pretty good? Or will leaving out the Vanilla Bean really make it yucky?

      Okay, I thought I just posted a comment, but it doesn't seem to have posted, so let me try this again!

      I know that Vanilla Beans are by far the most flavorful and lasting way to go in ANY baking and cooking, but unfortunately they are far too expensive for my very modest budget. I am wondering if I would sacrifice too much in the mix if I used Vanilla Powder as a compromise. (The powder is still too expensive; but I might get more mileage out of a bottle of that).

      So, what do you think? Would it just taste too yucky to use the powder instead of the bean?!!

      Have you looked online to get vanilla beans? I buy them in bulk once a year or so and make all of my own vanilla extract.

      I was wondering what would happen if you just added your vanilla when you added the wet ingredients.

      I will check online for vanilla beans, as well as the bulk areas of the stores.
