We really enjoyed this lovely pudding cake. It was quick and easy to make with excellent results. The cake was tender and delicious the sauce thin and very flavorful. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Served with French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream for a memorable dessert. Made FYC tag game.
