Non-chocolate self-saucing pudding cakes

7 posts in this topic

I like the cakes that use a chocolate/hot water mixture poured on top, which transforms into a bottom layer of sauce. But I'd like to branch out from chocolate. Ever try a different flavor, and if so, what were the alternate ingredients?

I'm thinking of trying a butterscotch flavored cake, by browning butter, then adding brown sugar and hot water to make the sauce. Brown sugar and vanilla in the cake itself.

I think the lemon one is called "lemon delicious" - certainly google brings up lots of recipes with that name. Haven't had it for a long time but it's very light and fluffy, I don't think you add water on top like with a chocolate pudding, I think the pudding just ends up floating on sauce.

I wonder if the cocoa powder (in the chocolate sauce) is what gives it some body, or if some of the flour from the cake part migrates into the sauce. I might try my idea for browned butter, brown sugar, and water, but I think it might be too thin.
