Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

Cake Batter Ingredients

  • 3/4 C Sugar

  • 1/2 C Flour

  • 1/4 C Cocoa Powder

  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 1/2 C Milk

  • 1/3 C Butter, melted

  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Pudding Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 C Sugar

  • 1/2 C Brown Sugar

  • 1/4 C Cocoa Powder

  • 1 1/4 C HOT Water


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a 9-inch square or 2-quart round baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

  • For the cake: Whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Mix until combined. Spread batter into the prepared pan.

  • For the hot fudge pudding sauce: Stir together the sugar, brown sugar, and cocoa powder. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the top of the cake batter. Pour HOT water over the top. DO NOT STIR.

  • Bake at 350˚F for 35-40 minutes or until the center is almost set. Remove from oven and let cake rest for 15 minutes, so the sauce will cool slightly and thicken. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
