A BETTER HOT FUDGE PUDDING CAKE

I have made a Hot Fudge Pudding Cake for years. Fresh out of the oven it is gooey and rich, with only 2 T.  of fat.  It is quick to make with stuff you already have.  But ice cream is a must.  The recipe makes only 6 servings.  If you double the recipe it needs a bigger than 9x13 pan.  I have made it in a 11x14 inch successfully.   You might want to bake it in 2 separate pans if you don't have a larger one.   The rich chocolate flavor is much improved with the addition of chocolate chips in the batter and some vanilla or coffee in the water.

IMPROVED HOT FUDGE PUDDING CAKE


1 C. flour
1/2 c. sugar
2 T. cocoa
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C. milk
2 T vegetable oil or melted butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 C. semisweet chocolate chips

1 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 C. baking cocoa
1 3/4 C. very hot water
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat oven to 350ºF.  Mix flour, sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa, the baking powder and salt. Mix in milk, oil and ½ tsp vanilla until smooth.  Add 1/3 C. chocolate chips.  Spread in 9 inch square pan or a 7X11 caserole. Mix brown sugar and 1/4 c. cocoa together then sprinkle over batter. Mix 1 tsp. vanilla and (optional) 1 serving of instant coffee powder in the very hot water and pour over batter. (Since I don’t drink coffee I buy the little box that has 10 serving packets in it.) The mocha flavor makes it extra rich.   Bake 30  minutes.
