Mom's Date Pudding Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
Thank you for submitting this recipe as it is hard to find this version where the mixture is boiled and poured over the batter. I had lost my recipe, similar to this one, that my mom had passed down to me. I usually would bake one of these cakes at Christmas and my family members loved it! It's very rich and just have to remember to cut smaller pieces.

I was very sceptical about this recipe but I had some dates to use up so I dedided to try it anyway. The only alterations I made were leaving out all the sugar in the cake itself (it was sweet anyway with the sugar on the dates and the v. rich sauce) and halving the sauce. It was still very sweet and yummy! Actually quite low-fat due to there being no eggs in it and only a small amount of butter in the sauce (which I halved anyway remember). You would never guess from the finished product the weird ingredient list. Please try this cake without prior predjudice!

THIS RECIPE COULDNT HAVE BEEN EASIER OR MORE WONDERFUL! VERY RICH! (ALTHOUGH MY BOYFRIED ATE 3 PIECES IN A ROW). IT TASTED JUST LIKE A DESSERT AT AN AMISH RESTAURANT THAT CALLS IT "AMISH WEDDING DESSERT." I HAD BEEN LOOKING ALL OVER FOR THIS RECIPE, ALTHOUGH THEIRS HAD CHUNKS OF BANANA IN IT, I MAY TRY THAT VARIATION NEXT TIME. THANKS FOR SHARING!

This is a favorite recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners at our house. Hard to find this recipe in cookbooks but it is really worth trying.
