In a pinch, can whole milk be substituted for cream in this toffee pudding recipe?

As a 1-for-1 replacement apparently not.

While I've never tried this recipe, commenter Neil wrote:

"The UK recipe calls for self rising flour, as well as baking soda. The adjustment to regular flour is not made in the US version here and the is presumably why some of the notes say the cake is only an inch high.
The UK one also uses double cream for the topping, which is very thick and generally unavailable here. That may explain some of the watery sauces noted.
Substitutions for both can be found online"

You will likely have more success if you source a suitable product more related to the original ingredient.

Best of luck.
