  7. I’m from New Zealand – I guess any butterscotch instant cake mix will do – but what is the tin of buttermilk cookies?  I might try this for a fundraising cake stall – sounds amazing!

  8. Replying to Kaz
    Aussie here who can translate American premix speak.
    Buttermilk biscuits are buttermilk scones. So use a packet of scone mix or make up your own scone dough.
    Butterscotch pudding isn’t a cake mix, it’s more like a really sweet custard dessert mix. I think you could just make butterscotch sauce which is super easy.
     1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
     60g butter
     300ml pure cream
    Place sugar, butter and cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, without boiling, for 4 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened.
