It looked a little funny after I followed the directions and assembled it all in the pan. This is what it looks like right before you put it in the oven.
Looks like a watery mess, doesn't it?
But, TRUST ME. Follow the directions exactly because this is the end result...
Aaaahhhhhh... chocolate bliss!!!! Fudgy brownie like cake on top and rich chocolate pudding below!!! The recipe says to serve it with ice cream, but we've never done that. We just eat it as is. Hot and yummy!!!
Here's the recipe in case you want to try it. It comes together FAST and can bake while you and your family sit down to dinner. Serve it hot (I don't like the taste nearly as much when it cools) and prepare for happy, smiling faces around your table!!

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 T cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
