Had a burst of domesticity today and decided to bake a pudding cake. Usually this entails adding a box of pudding mix to a cake box mix. But having no cake box mixes on hand I searched in vain on the internet for a semi-scratch recipe and then decided to go ahead and try my luck with adding a box of pudding to a regular cake from scratch. I found a recipe for a quick 2-egg cake that sorta sounded like yellow cake.
Well, it was a total disaster. For some reason the edges burnt while the middle was still liquidy. And then when I lowered the temp and came back to check it, there was no more middle. It had totally sunk. And it still wasn’t cooked. Finally I decided it was cooked enough to come out and I turned it upside down on a plate and the girls and I just took forks and dug in. It was pretty gross. Smelled good though.
Anyone have a real recipe for the kind of cake that is moist and kind of dense (usually they make it with lemon mix and lemon pudding)?
Hmm – thinking about it, maybe my experience today is the reason I always see it in a bundt pan… ha ha.
