Here’s one thing I find comments on a website really good for: trawling for information.

My spouse and I were talking over dessert this evening, over some lemon delcious pudding that she had made. She asked the question she asks every couple of years (when a self saucing pudding is made):

How do self-saucing puddings work?

They really are miraculous, and we haven’t got much of an idea of how the chemistry of these things makes them work. A cursory Googling reveals nothing, and neither does a quick flick through On Food and Cooking.

Can you help us?
