Blueberry Pudding with Hard Sauce

Made  times

"The 'pudding' is really a cake, but this is what my grandmother always called it. It is topped with a butter sugar sauce when served. I have never had anything as delicious in my life. It is not low- cal, but one of those rare indulgences worth the calories."

  3. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar and butter together until smooth. Beat in the egg gradually, then stir in vanilla. Chill until serving. Serve chilled sauce over warm pudding.



We all loved this recipe. Since I have never seen pasteurized egg in the grocery store, I mixed 2 eggs with 1/2 cup of the icing sugar and cooked it over the stove until very hot, then added it ...

The pudding (cake) is superb and would rate 5 stars but the icing or hard sauce could do better without the eggs. In any event the sauce is not as good as traditional hard sauce and I give it 3...

I was expecting more of a pudding than a cake but, it was a very moist good tasting cake. The hard sauce was more like frosting and too sweet. Good, but didn't meet my expectations.

i didnt use pasteuized eggs so will see how it turns out ! i found my batter was a little thick
