If you’re gonna heat up the kitchen this summer, this Chocolate Pudding Cake is worth every degree! A chocolate lovers dream with tender cake surrounded by a rich fudgy chocolate sauce. Oooh ya, it’s delicious and you won’t want to deny yourself!!
While this recipe does dirty up a couple bowls, it’s very easy and quick to prepare. The best part is the built in sauce. My last real memory of a pudding cake comes from my childhood and from a box mix. What a treat it was because we were not a big dessert family nor did my mom much like baking. I remember picking out the flavour in the grocery store, setting the kettle up for boiling water and devouring the sauce laden cake. As I remember it, there were only two flavours, chocolate and lemon. Both scored pretty high when dessert was a bit of a novelty. While the box mix seemed pretty delicious at the wise age of 8, I now know what all the fuss was really about. The sauce!
This recipe is just as easy as the box mix to prepare, but sooo much better in texture and flavour. A little cake batter, a sprinkle of chocolatey sugar, boiling water and ta da!! Done! I’m pretty sure it will be a happy place for you as well. Enjoy!
