This recipe dates back to the 1800s. It was a favorite of my father's and is now a hit with a husband. It works especially well when you've had a busy day and need to make a dessert pronto!

MY REVIEW

"I prepared this cake and I deliberately used 1 cup of cold water with 1 cup packed light brown sugar! I also used 1 tsp. vanilla extract and combined the 1/2 cup raisins with 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour. I greased and floured pan and baked 45 minutes at 350o F. until golden brown. I cut a small piece and the caramel mixture did work for me-I had a small square with the pudding mixture and the cake was light and tender-not soggy! I know if I used 2 cups of water, the dish would've been ruined! I'd prepared a similar recipe 2/17/14 and I sampled nearly the whole thing, but I'd made adjustments which weren't necessary & I know now not to "spoil the broth"! The recipe I'd made yesterday was NOTHING like this! I'd added too much liquid and it was soggy! I greased and floured an 8" baking pan and the Caramel Pudding Cake baked up perfectly! I'm finding out as I prepare recipes for TOH & FROM TOH that preparing a recipe is a science! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I used the recipe for this week's Challenge Theme from " Cook's Corner" for Caramel! delowenstein"

"This tasted like bisquick with sugar water. I will not make this again even with less water"

"The cake was soggy. Instead of having a pudding or sauce under the cake, it just soaked up the sugar water into the cake making it soggy and wet. I have made other pudding cakes that had a chewy cake and a pudding underneath that were very good. This is not a good pudding cake."

"This looked like it would really be good and easy. I agree with the other comments; when finished baking, I let it cool for about 20 minutes then dipped into it. It was like sitting on top of brown sugar water. I double checked the recipe and had written everything down as shown. There definitely is something wrong. Hope someone figures it out. I don't like to waste things so, we"ll finish this cake but will probably not make it again."
