Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
Seriously, I made it one night when I needed a serious chocolate fix. It was incredibly easy and FAST (took me about 10 min of prep and was done baking in about 30) and completely fool-proof! I shared some with a friend on her birthday because doesn't it just SCREAM Restaurant deliciousness for a birthday treat!? Or any day for that matter!
HERE, or one with a few of my tweaks just below.
HOT FUDGE PUDDING CAKE
1-1/4 cups granulated sugar, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa, divided (I used a dutch milk chocolate for a richer flavor)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1-1/4 cups hot water
One Rounded scoop of vanilla Ice Cream
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Combine 3/4 cup granulated sugar, flour, 1/4 cup cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk, butter and vanilla; beat until smooth.
2. Pour batter into ungreased 9-inch square baking pan. Stir together remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar and remaining 1/4 cup cocoa; sprinkle mixture evenly over batter. Pour hot water over top; do not stir.
3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Remove from oven; let stand 15 minutes. Serve in dessert dishes, spooning sauce from bottom of pan over top. Garnish with whipped topping. About 8 servings.
