“My Mom used to make this and I still make this pudding like cake. During the baking the batter rises to the top and a pudding like sauce forms underneath the crust. There is also a lemon version.”

I haven't seen this recipe in years. It's a great dessert for a family supper. I added vanilla to the batter as well as the sauce. Don't be alarmed by the look of this when you pour the sauce over top - it's very sloshy, but it does turn out nicely. Serve warm or cold, not hot, if you want the sauce to thicken up a bit.

Nothing wrong with this recipe at all. It turned out perfect and plain delicious. I noticed that most of the problems relate to the sauce being runny. YOU JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND LET IT COOL! IT WILL THICKEN. Also, when you spoon the batter into the dish, use the dish size indicated in the recipe because it should be a fairly thin layer of batter or else it will turn out rubbery.



Loved it! The first time I made it, it came out a little bland. The next time I addes some salt to the batter and it was simply perfect.
