|Deep dark chocolate sauce bubbles and oozes up through the chocolate cake.|
This is a revamped old recipe that I loved as a child and that my Mother often made. She had dessert every night and baked pies several times a week. Dad was always home for a good supper and it was built around her good home cooking!! The rich ooze of the chocolate pudding nestled just below the rich cake makes for a chocolate lovers delight. Count me in!!
