Easy Rich Pudding Cake

I've had a standard pudding cake recipe that I've used for years, substituting milk for water in that recipe. But this recipe is far superior. I think it's the evaporated milk and oil. A good, rich cake but the pudding still bakes through. Yum.

"Warm your heart" Pudding Cakes.

Wow these are a step above the pudding cakes I have made in the past. It has to be the milk that does it. The milk adds a richness to the cake that other recipes I have tried just don't come close to. This is a keeper for sure.
