Maple Pudding Cake

  • Level: Easy
  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings
  • Total: 1 hr
  • Active: 10 min


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar 

1 teaspoon baking powder 

Kosher salt

1/2 cup buttermilk 

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled 

1 large egg 

1 1/2 cups heavy cream 

1 cup maple syrup

Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for serving, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, butter and egg. Stir the wet mixture into the dry; the batter will be thick.
  3. Heat a 9-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the cream and maple syrup and whisk to combine. Bring to a low simmer and add a pinch of salt. Turn off the heat. Use a soup spoon to drop the cake batter onto the maple syrup mixture.
  4. Bake until the cake is set, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.

I would give this more stars after I added thin slices of ginger to the sauce. Every one loves it
