Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
During the holiday season it seems that there is always friends, neighbors and family that drop in for a visit. On especially cold days it is fun to whip up a quick warm chocolate baked dessert. Hot Fudge Pudding Cake is always a crowd pleaser and is best served with warm topped with vanilla ice cream.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl sift together:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup sugar
2 Tablespoon cocoa
½ cup milk
2 Tablespoon melted butter
Spread the batter in the bottom of a 9-inch square pan.
Sprinkle on top of the batter a mixture of:
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
¼ cup cocoa
Pour 1 ¾ cups of hot water over entire batter and brown sugar-cocoa mixture.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. During the baking the cake mixture will rise to the top and a rich chocolate sauce will form on the bottom.
Serve warm. To serve cut into squares and invert on plate. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and top with warm sauce from the bottom of the pan.
