MY REVIEW

This has become my go to cake for all occasion. My family loves it. I have started to make changes in the recipe for my own benefit. to decrease the sugar amount (for health reason) I use a boxed sugar free cake mix. I also make my own butterscotch pudding (creamy butterscotch pudding from taste of home). the microwave oven makes it a snap. thanks for a great cake.

It was good. It reminded me of a butterscotch blondie recipe I use, but since it had milk instead of Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk it was not nearly as rich. If I make it again I may fold in the butterscotch chips (I omitted the nuts) & try an 8X8 or 9X9 pan.

So simply said, this simply excellent. It's easy to prepare. First time, I prepare cake mix and combine pudding...Definitely will make these again.
