From Company's Coming Chocolate. A good rich self-saucing dessert. This is the best, yummiest, easiest dessert ever. Can be whipped up in under ten minutes. And it uses common ingredients that I always have on hand!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Add milk, butter vanilla and nuts. Turn into ungreased 2 quart baking dish. Smooth on top.
  3. Combine brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa in a small bowl. Mix well. Sprinkle over top of batter.
  4. Pour water on top. To avoid making wells in the batter either pour the water slowly, or pour it onto a spoon held over pudding, allowing it to run off gently.
  5. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Top will be firm. Batter will rise and there will be a pudding-type sauce at the bottom.
  6. Serve warm. This is really delicious with ice cream.

My husband was over the moon, he couldn't stop raving about this cake. I had a small portion and he finished off the rest. Nice decadent chocolate flavor, beautiful texture to the cake with a nice smooth pudding. Made as written, but omitted the nuts, my husband is allergic. Thank you for sharing your treat. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

Pure decadence. I have made several versions of self-saucing pudding cakes, but never one with nuts, Great addition. Made for Spring 2014 PAC.
