Hot Fudge Pudding Cake...

This recipe quite surprised me when I first tried it about 6 years ago. Hot fudge + pudding + cake = tasty fun in my book!! So, I tried it out.

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!!

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 T cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 T shortening
4 T brown sugar
2 T cocoa
2 cups hot water

Mix first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Stir in milk and shortening. Spread in an 8x8 inch prepared baking dish. Mix brown sugar and additional cocoa and sprinkle over mixture. Pour 2 cups hot water on top and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve hot alone or with ice cream.

I used to make this cake when the kids were little. Lost the recipe -I'll have to try yours. It is a wonderful recipe. Blessings...

Yum! So there isn't a box of pudding mix in there? The water on top creates it?

Mrs. U said...

Yes, ma'am, Betsy, Somehow it all mixed together and makes this delicious chocolate pudding!! It's thinner at first because it's so hot, but after a minute or two, it thickens up and is SOOO tasty!!

That looks SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO heavenly! I could eat that whole pan! Hahaha!

Those tags are with the Martha Stewart stuff. There are several different design cutouts in each bag. I use them all the time! They're perfect!

That looks divine! I saw your comment over on Betsy's post with the daisy beside it, and I just had to come over to your blog. I am so glad I did!

Paula said...

I've got to try this! It looks like something my kids would love to get on their clothes.:)

Betsy Brock said...

Is it 350 degrees? And 40 minutes flat? you look for any signal that it's finished? (since ovens vary so much) Thanks...

Mrs. U said...

Oh dear! Betsy, I am so sorry!! yes, 350 degrees (and thank you for pointing out that I left out that critical bit of information!!!). And it is definitely 40 minutes in my oven. The edges of the cake part looked done, the pudding part bubbles up around the edges and the middle "moves" a little when touched because there is pudding in there. Yum!

I hope I'm not too late getting this information to you!

It's pretty good, but not very sweet. I think I would like it better with more sugar.
