Rich, fudgy and dense…this Chocolate Pudding Cake is a huge hit at family parties!
I am in such a food coma right now. I ate so much last week while visiting my parents, I don’t really need to eat at all for a few more days, at least.
Yesterday I shared my Dad’s bread pudding that we ate, and today I’m sharing another recipe from last week.
I knew my dad had requested that I make carrot cake, but I was going through a baking withdrawal.
I am used to cooking something up nearly every day of the week. As much as I tried to relax and enjoy the time off, my taste buds were begging for some chocolate.
Chocolate Cake to be exact.
So, after searching my parents cupboards one afternoon, I realized they had all the ingredients to make a moist chocolate pudding cake.
SO SO SO easy, and only a few ingredients. There are so many varieties you can make as well.
This is a very dense cake because of the pudding, but quite a lovely treat!
