  1. you didn’t say if pudding was instant or cook n serve

    1. Sorry about that, it’s instant!

  2. Do you think this will turn out if I use an egg replacement?

    1. That should work! Check the box of egg replacement for the equivalent amounts (I think 1 egg usually = 1/4 cup).

  3. How much does this make? I have to make one for 100 people

    1. This one usually gives me 16-20 servings.

    I had to take a guess on what size pudding boxes to use. These days they coming in about three different sizes and kinds. So next time see what size boxes were supposed to use to be really helpful.
