Today, I want to share one of my family recipes: Chocolate Pudding Cake. This is one of the recipes that has been passed down through the generations from my great-grandmother, Nanny, although I made a few minor changes. I know I’ve mentioned it previously, but I come from a long line of amazing bakers on both sides of my family!
This old-fashioned cake starts with a thick chocolate batter, and then you pour hot liquid (almost like hot chocolate) on top. As it bakes, a gooey cake forms, with a rich chocolate pudding underneath.
The best part of this cake, besides the fact that it tastes amazing, is that it is incredibly easy to whip up! All of the prep work takes only about 15 minutes, and you don’t need an electric mixer. You also really only need one bowl and a large measuring cup, so dirty dishes are minimal (a big plus in my book!).
So, if you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert — something for Valentine’s Day perhaps? — look no further! Grab some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for topping, and you’re good to go.
