newbie dirt cake question
I am fairly new at learning to cook. Can anyone tell me which is best in a dirt cake recipe...
Make pudding by cooking it
Use powdered mix as is without cooking...
Which is better?
By the way...
This is a serious question because I have seen youtube videos and recipes done both ways.
Thanks for any help! :)
i think home-made pudding will taste better than boxed, but this "cake" uses store-bought cookies and cool-whip so is mostly about how it looks anyway.
i always like cooked pudding better, but there is so much sweet stuff in a dirt cake instant pudding would pass. My husband used to make this for Christmas potlucks at work. He would use a new plastic flowerpot ant place a plastic poinsettia in it.
As a rule of thumb, homemade should taste better than store bought, but sometimes that's not really the issue! For Dirt Cake I'd probably use a mix and just enjoy the end result. Sounds like you're going to have fun making this - good luck!
