Charlie was having a friend over for a wild movie night (they watched Bergman's WILD STRAWBERRIES), and he asked if I could make a dessert before I left for my meeting.
I had a box mix of pineapple cake, so I said sure, I'd make pineapple upside-down cake. He was happy.
Then I found that my pineapples were chunks, not rings, and I didn't have the box of vanilla pudding powder the recipe on the box asked for.
Nothing loath, as they used to say in the boys' adventure books I read as a young girl, I looked up enough internet recipes for DIY pudding to give 'er a shot.
So, to the cake mix, I added a cup of powdered milk, about half a cup of sugar, and a teaspoon of cornstarch. Prolly didn't need the cornstarch, but oh well.
Here's how it turned out:
Could be prettier, but, as my grandpa used to say, "That don't hurt the eatin' of it." And it was delicious! OMnomnomnomnom!
I'm posting at my blog today about my homemade bibambap. Also delicious.
