Dark Chocolate Pudding Cake

Growing up, hot fudge pudding cake was always a treat.  The crunchy cake top with the warm, thick pudding below topped with melting ice cream.  Decadent, sure but so worth it as occasional winter dessert.  I tweaked my family recipe slightly.




Dark Chocolate Pudding Cake

Bottom layer ~

1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp dark cocoa (I used King Arthur Flour Double-Dutch Dark Cocoa)
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp canola oil

Mix together in a bowl and spread into a greased 9 x 9 pan.

Top with ~

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup dark cocoa

Combine in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly over the batter.

Pour 1 3/4 cup of hot water on top.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350°.
