One of those magical cakes where you get a sauce on the bottom and a cake on top. This one is a bit healthier and lower in fat than many desserts. From The Vegetarian Gourmet's Easy Low-Fat Favorites.

Ah nothing like the old 70's self saucing cake eh?? This was good served with a bit of whip cream. I would have liked a bit more sauce so next time I'll just make more sauce!! Thanks Cornelia

This was very good, and very easy - my favorite combination! The cake tastes a bit like a gingerbread with this orangey sauce. Very tasty. I've never made a pudding cake before, although I've seen them, so I don't know how pudding-like the sauce should be. Mine was pretty liquid, but thickened, not set like a pudding. That did not detract from taste or appearance.
