Reviews forBlueberry Pudding Cake
"I have made this recipe many, many times and each time it is a total hit. I'll continue making it with no changes to the recipe since it is perfect the way it was first written!"
"I have rated this as a 4* recipe. I'd never made it before. My adjustments were using a can of raspberry pie filling since I did not have blueberries available. I'd also made adjustments using 2 tsp. lemon juice to the berry filling and adding 1/4 tsp. salt with the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and sugar). I'd baked 45 minutes, tested cake and baked 5 minutes longer. Thank you for sharing! delowenstein"
"My children love this cake.. I have it in the oven right now. I make mine with GF bisquick and 1/2 the sugar.. perfect every time."
"This is an awesome blueberry dessert - I have made it more times than I can count. I sometimes serve with homemade whipped cream instead of vanilla ice cream. I noticed some people commented their sauce was runny when using frozen blueberries - I've never had that problem - Editor's note states do not thaw the frozen blueberries to avoid discoloring the batter, but I also think that not thawing prevents the runny sauce."
"LOVE this dessert when served with vanilla ice cream! I suggest upping the cornstarch amount to at least 2 tbsp (otherwise the sauce is very thin, not really thickened much at all- but I always use frozen blueberries, so maybe that makes the difference?)"
"After reading all the great reviews I was surprised. Mine came out runny. I'm wondering if it is because I used frozen blueberries and when they thawed that may have caused the soupy mix. Mine has a dark crust and doesn't look like the picture. I would not make this again."
"have made this with different fruit - always comforting"
"Wasn't nearly as good as I'd hoped it would be. The cake part wasn't that great, tasting more like a soggy biscuit that anything. And the blueberries had way too much cinnamon, which ruined the flavor. And the blueberries were too soupy also. No, I would not make this again."
