Already-made pudding in baking recipes?

Greygarious, Eating Joy, that's definitely what I was looking for. Thank you for the math and the clearly defined starting points--I'll have to try what you both have said.

And it's not that the volume of dessert is an issue--just that everyone's a little tired of pudding.

Thanks again!

Already-made pudding in baking recipes?

For example, the muffin batter sounds good--would I need to reduce liquids if I added pudding? If so, how much?

Already-made pudding in baking recipes?

I know it can be done, I was wondering if anyone had any specific recipes--everything online I can find uses pudding that is still in powder form, not ready made, and I'm not sure how to substitute the ready made stuff in my baking.

Already-made pudding in baking recipes?

I've recently started making my own pudding, and in my zeal, I have made more pudding than we could ever want to eat.

I've heard that you can incorporate pudding into baking--cakes and cookies, mostly--but pretty much everything I've found calls for instant pudding packages being mixed into the cake flour before wet ingredients are added.

Do you know of any recipes that could incorporate already-made pudding into them? If not, any ideas on what I should do with all of this pudding?

Thanks!

Looking for a ratio-based cookbook

In retrospect, my own search could have gone a lot better. Maybe searching 'ratio cookbook' the first time would have done the trick. At least I am pretty.

This is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much!

Looking for a ratio-based cookbook

Years ago, I heard about a cookbook that dealt primarily in ratios, i.e. if you increase the flour and decrease the liquid and sugar in your cake recipe, you have bread. Continuing in this vein produces biscuits, etc.

It broke down many common foods into ratios and grouped them together. It seemed like an interesting cookbook, but for the life of me, I can't remember the name!

Does anyone out there know what I am talking about?
