The Best, Most Divine Chocolate Pudding Cake in the World

My favorite, most treasured recipe - this is it. I remember the taste and texture and aroma of this dessert from my childhood and it's a recipe I stumbled on accidently a few years ago. I don't think I'll even find something as delightful as this. It is great fresh out of the oven, served cold a day later, or even re-heated in the microwave - all perfect. Serve it with vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream - or my favorite - all by itself. Once you've tried this, you'll be hooked. Welcome to heaven...


3/4 C Sugar
1 C Flour
1/4 C Cocoa Powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C milk
1/3 butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla

1/2 C sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/4 C Cocoa
1 1/4 Hot Water


Combine 3/4 C sugar, flour, 1/4 C cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, butter, and vanilla - mix until smooth. Pour into ungreased 9x9 baking pan.

Mix together remaining 1/2 C sugar, brown sugar, and remaining 1/4 C cocoa. Sprinkle over batter in baking pan. Pour hot water over - DO NOT STIR.

Bake 35-40 minutes at 350. Remove from oven and let set for 15 minutes; pudding portion is EXTREMELY HOT! Enjoy!

I just saw a rave about this on The Nest - I can't wait to try it! My grandmother makes something similar. Do you mind if I link to your blog from mine? Mine is cookingcutie.blogspot.com.

I'm going to try making this tonight. Looks great! Should the recipe read 1/3 (cup) of butter, melted?
