    How many servings does this recipe make, and can I bake them in individual ramekins?

    How many servings does this recipe make? And can I bake this in individual ramekins with sauce on the side? I am hosting a dinner party for 8…

    Thank you

      Ginny, Thank you for the question about this recipe. I am not sure how well this recipe would work as an individual serving. There is a sauce created while it cooks and I am not sure how well it will work as individual ramekins. As for serving 8, an 8×8 pan usually would serve 4-6 people. You could double the recipe and pour into a deep 9 x 13. I hope this helps and I also wish you good luck with your dinner party.

    Should it still be “wet” after 35 minutes at 350? I’m hesitant to take it out of the oven!

      Hi Carol, Apologies that I’m late replying. That pudding cake recipe is an old one from long before I joined the company so I haven’t ever made it. I hope that it turned out okay. As you likely know, a pudding cake is self-saucing so will be wet underneath. Did the top part cook?
