Ingredients

How to make it

  • For cake: mix all dry ingredients together. Stir in milk, butter and vanilla and mix until smooth (you may add a little more milk if it's too dry still). You basically want a thick cake batter, like a brownie batter actually. Pour into a lightly buttered baking dish.
  • For topping: Place cocoa and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in hot water. Pour over batter (yes, that's right!) and bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes. Sift powdered sugar over it (if desired). Serve hot or warm, with whipped cream.

    I have been eating this since I was a little kid! "Hot Fudge Pudding Cake". One of my faves from childhood, and I think it was the first recipe I ever post here, too. lol Never tried it with the salt, will have to do that. You can use coffee in place of the water, too. Nice to see people still enjoying the old classics!
