Chocolate Chocolate Pudding Cake

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!!

Ingredients for the cake:

3/4 C. sugar
1 C. flour
1/4 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
2 T. good unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 C. half and half, cream, or evaporated milk
3 T. melted butter
1 t. vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.

Combine the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and whisk together well.  Using another bowl combine the cream or milk and the melted butter and vanilla stirring well.  Pour the wet into the dry and mix well.   Batter will be very stiff.  Spread evenly across the prepared pan.

Ingredients for the Topping:

1/2 C. sugar
1/2 C. packed brown sugar
1/4 C. good unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 C. water

Combine the dry ingredients and sprinkle evenly over the batter.  Pour the water over all and bake for 45 minutes.  Serve warm or at room temperature.  Yield 6 servings.

What size pan did you use?

Diane Cosby said...

I have an odd size pan that is about 4" deep and 7" x 9". Mother made this in about a 3 quart round casserole dish. It puffs up a bit then subsides upon cooling. I would say the depth is important for that reason.
