      This cake is awesome! The only thing I changed was instead of hot water I used hot apple cider. Definitely a do-over!

      This was the first pudding cake I had ever made and it turned out great. The instructions are spot on. Since I have a baking dish with a divider down the center, I made it with both apples and pears. I also added an ounce of brandy to the water for extra flavor. Thanks for posting!

      This was absolutely fabulous with fresh pears and ginger! The ginger really gave it a special zing. My son loves fruit desserts, and boy, we gobbled this one down. If you're not familiar with pudding cake, when baked, the cake layer comes to the top and a saucy layer remains on the bottom. With pears in this version, the fruit remains on the bottom too, similar to a cakey cobbler. Easy and quick to prepare as well. Scouter, I'd give you more than 5 stars if I could! Thanks for a great recipe!
