My Mom was visiting friends in the US (we're from Canada) and picked up some pudding for me that I can't get up here. However, she mistakenly grabbed cooked pudding even though she knows I use instant.

What will happen if I try the cooked pudding? Has anyone successfully used it instead of instant?

depends on what you are doing with it. IF you are adding to a cake mix recipe then the cooked wont work. But if you are just making the pudding IMO cooked tastes much better then the instant and really isn't all that much work.

i don't know what doesn't work, but the recipes i have seen always call for the instant added in.

I tried it last night and it actually did work. Taste and appearance are just the same as with instant pudding. Texture was a little more dense but nothing unpleasant.

I'd do it again if I could get instant.

this may not help, but I grabbed cooked vanilla pudding instead of instant when I was making rolled sugar cookies. Recipe called for instant, I used the the cooked and my cookies turned out just fine hth with your decision making icon_smile.gif

I've bought the "cook" type pudding by mistake before and I've used it instead of the instant. Didn't notice any difference.

I always wanted to know the differnce between the cooked version and the instant. We do not have the instant ones so I've always used the cooked version.
