Anyone have a recipe for “Pudding Cake” that came off a box of Parkay margarine..back in the 50s?

Was the “Pudding Cake” like a regular cake in texture or was it a dessert that separated into cake on top and pudding under the cake when baked? I have a recipe for Fudge Batter Pudding that is the second description.
