Blueberry Pudding with Hard Sauce

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  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.

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.

1.29.17 Followed the cake portion of this recipe to the letter, baked in an 8x8 pan, and ended up with an awesome cake. Super tender and moist, and the blueberries just pop with every bite. T...
