This deliciously rich Fudge Pudding Cake creates its own chocolate sauce, right in the pan while it bakes. Think of a warm cobbler, only chocolate. You are going to love this dessert, and your family will be asking for it again, and again.
I’ve been making this recipe for my family for years. It has even been known to make an appearance as a “birthday cake,” like it did for Jennifer when she turned 17 years old.
To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×9 inch (or similar sized) baking pan. Set it aside for now.
In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of baking cocoa. If you would like nuts in this dessert, add in 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts. I leave them out if I am baking for friends with food allergies.
Stir those together, then add in 1/2 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Mix together until it forms a thick batter. Spread the batter in your baking pan.
In another bowl, combine 1/4 cup of baking cocoa and 1 cup of brown sugar. Sprinkle this dry mixture over the top of the batter in the pan.
Pour 1 3/4 cup of hot water all over the top. Don’t stir anything. Simply place the pan in your oven and bake for 45 minutes.
When it is done baking, you will have a beautiful, fudgy cake. And underneath the cake, you will discover a gorgeous chocolate sauce. Serve the cake warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Spoon some of the sauce over the top.
This will warm your heart and cure your chocolate cravings.
