Lemon Pudding Cake

Pudding cake is an old fashioned and simple dessert. It is a dessert that has been around for years and it is exactly what it sounds like, part pudding, part cake.

This type of cake has always fascinated me. You mix it up all together like a normal cake, and yet in the oven it separates and creates a layer of cake and a layer of pudding. It ends up being the perfect combination of both.

I posted a gluten free version of this Lemon Pudding Cake in my allergy section earlier this week.

I also have a chocolate pudding cake that we love. And have a gluten free version of it that is a new favorite in our house.

  1. This looks yummy. Do you know if you could substitute the milk with anything else? I’ve used almond milk in cooking but not for baking so I’m not sure how it would turn out. Didn’t know if you had other suggestions. Thanks!

    • @Ashley, I am not sure on that. I don’t cook dairy free. I think it would be worth trying though. Coconut milk might even work well in it. Let me know if you try it and it works.

      • @Lynn, Thanks, Lynn. I’ll let you know if I do. My first thought is that coconut milk might work better as it is creamier. Almond milk isn’t creamy at all!

  2. I’ve tried chocolate pudding cake before but have not yet tried a lemon version of it. I love lemon desserts so I think I’d really enjoy this. I’m starting a new linky on my blog called “Sweets for a Saturday” and I’d like to invite you to stop by and link this up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/01/sweets-for-saturday-1_21.html
