Ohhhhh!!! Yeah you can get ramekins in all kinds of different sizes. I have a souffle dish about 1.5 quarts that is virtually identical to my approx. 6 oz. dessert ramekins, except for the difference in size.

I'm pretty sure you could use Pyrex dishes of an appropriate size. I have tons of them in various sizes for mise en place but I sometimes cook individual quiches in them too.

See I knew I wouldn't have to google! Thanks PF and Greg

I'm really not that lazy, in case you all wondered, I have a ear infection (they think) and with a huge amount of vertigo and nausea, I haven't sat in front of the computer too long, talk about being miserable....

If you have an ear infection with a pain in the butt then maybe you have a different problem?

Sorry I haven't been well for the last 2-3 days either but I hope tomorrow will be a better day.

I hope U 2 will be better tomorrow.

Sorry, sometimes my ironic sense of humor kicks in. It just seemed funny to me a pain in the ear being a pain in the butt.

Did you mean 'cake' instead of pudding? This really leaves me confused.

Addie, she used one of the boxed cake mixes that have dry chocolate pudding included in the mixture.

cake, recipe

3, 2, 1 Cake 3, 2, 1 CAKE I got this in an email, so thought I'd share. These individual little cakes are amazing and ready to eat in one minute! They are perfect for whenever you feel like a treat without all the fat and calories that cake can have. Genius idea! INGREDIENTS: 1 box Angel Food Cake Mix 1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor Makes 1 serving. (Keep reading) DIRECTIONS: In a ziploc bag, combine the two cake mixes together and mix well. For each individual cake serving, take out 3 Tablespoons of the cake mix combination and mix it with 2 Tablespoons of water in a small microwave-safe container. Microwave on high for 1 minute, and you have your own instant individual little cake! KEEP remaining cake mixture stored in the ziploc bag and use whenever you feel like a treat! You can top each cake with a dollop of fat free whipped topping and/or some fresh fruit, or ice cream sauce, or.... Helpful Tips: This recipe is called 3, 2, 1 Cake because all you need to remember is "3 tablespoons mix, 2 tablespoons water, 1 minute in the microwave!" TRY various flavors of cake mix like carrot, brownie mix, pineapple, lemon, orange, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has to be the angel food mix; the other is your choice. The flavor possibilities are endless! NOTES: The best thing is, you open both cake mixes into a gallon storage bag, one that 'zip locks' or 'self-seals', or a container that seals tightly, shake the two cake mixes to blend and then make the recipe. Storage of mix is simple, put it on a shelf. No need to refrigerate, since the mix is dry. Always remember, that one of the cake mixes MUST be Angel Food. The other can be any flavor. The Angel Food is the cake mix that has the eggs whites in it. 3 stars 1 reviews
