    I followed the recipe exactly as is and it is amazing; I wouldn’t change a thing. This cake is delicious and it creates it’s own sauce in the bottom of the pan you can spoon out and drizzle over the cake and ice cream if you decide to have it al a mode, which I would recommend. Will definitely make again.

    I literally cannot say enough about this cake! Was a little nervous as there haven't been 100 reviews on it and I was serving for Christmas dinner. (For me this is taking a chance!) But I could not have been happier with the result. We served warm with some ice cream and real whipped cream. Unbelievable. Wish we had room after Christmas dinner for more! This will be a <br/>Christmas tradition, I'm sure.

    EXCELLENT cake! Love the flavor and the texture! I don't think I've ever made a pudding cake before- pouring all that liquid on the top?! The baked result, with its thick gooey bottom, is wonderful! Serve it warm- if you serve it cold it is just extremely moist cake.

    I can only guess that in New Zealand Molasses is very different to where this recipe originated from. This was the most horrible disgusting cake I have ever tried to make. The oven and house just stunk of molasses, and, needless to say, that is all I could taste when I risked testing a crumb of this. Did not even bother giving it to my husband for his fishing burley, it went straight into the bin - what a waste of time and ingredients! But, as the other reviews are so good, there must be something wrong with what I have done. I might possibly try again with Golen Syrup or treacle instead of molasses - unless some-one else has a better idea?
