This is from that fantastic book I mentioned earlier: “Have your Cake and Vegan too”. It’s a really yummy vegan version to the instant pudding! 

Orange You Glad it’s Puddin Cake?

1 Cup flour
1/2 Cup plus 1/4 Cup sugar
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
a sprinle of salt
1/4 Cup margarine, melted
1/2 Cup milk, warmed
1 medium orange, zested plus 1/2 Cup juice
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 T cornstarch
1 Cup boiling water
1 Cup boiling water

powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 180 Lightly grease and flour an 8inch square pan or small baking dish.

To make the cake, in a small bowl combine the flour, the 1/2 Cup sugar, the baking powder, the baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and add the margarine, milk, orange zest, and vanilla. Mix until just combined. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. It will seem like ther isn’t much batter, this is normal. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 Cup sugar and the cornstarch until there are no lumps. Sprinkle this over the top of the batter. IN a small bowl combine the orange juice and water and pour over the top of the batter. Do not stir. At this point you will think I’m crazy.

Bake for 30-40 minutes. The cake will have risen to the top of the pan and will be lightly brown. the pudding layer will be bubbling up around the sides, and when moved the cake will appear to float. Let the warm cake sit in the pan on a cooling rack for 15 minutes before serving, to let the pudding thicken. Serve with a sprinkle of powedered sugar.
