Chocolate Pudding Cake

Oh yum!  That's about all you can say about this out-of-this-world dessert.  Not all cake, yet not all pudding, this treat is divine served with freshly whipped cream (although ice cream will do in a pinch), warm from the oven.  This cake is quick, simple and elegant enough to serve to company.

  1. Enola,


    Do you have to keep showing us those wonderful desserts.
    Since I cannot cook, I am being tortured by looking at all the foods that you show on your blog.
    I guess Im gonna have to go to wallymart and get a giant Hersey Dark chocolate bar and a box of Twinkies (if they still sell them) too simulate the dessert pictured above.

    Is true Twinkies can survive for 1,000 years?

  2. All I can say is YUMMY! I'm going to make this this weekend.

  3. Ooooh, I think I gained 5 pounds just by looking at it!

  4. I'll take two pieces . . . one for each hip . . . . I have to stay balanced!!

  5. Wow! I can't imbibe but I certainly intend to make this for my family. Maybe even try it in the crockpot, which is something I can use when we are on solar power. Then again, maybe showing hubby the pictures you posted of it will make him put making a solar cooker at the TOP of his list so we can try to cook it that way. I'm thinking that even a failure to cook would result in a yummy treat.


  6. I made this and WOW this is really good !! Thanks for the recipes.

  7. I made this today. It is wonderful. Thank you for the recipe.

  8. We made this last week. SO easy! It was a little sweet so I think I'll try cutting the sugar a little but so chocolatey and so good. Thanks for sharing!

  9. An Aussie favorite . . . I made something similar this weekend!

  10. Mmm yes, here is Aus I make sponge pudding all the time. Yum yum!

  11. Looks delicious! I intend to try this one in the VERY near future! I made something similiar a few months ago...brownie pudding cake out of better homes.
