Since there are only two of us to feed now, I was looking to cut back on cooking on so much food. I found this dessert in a TOH "Country Cooking” cookbook, submitted by Helene Belanger of Denver Colorado. This is a very "light chocolate tasting" cake. Submitted on May 18th 2006

Great recipe! Ideal size for one or two (one in my case!) I didn't have Bisquick, so I substituted 1/2 c. flour, 3/4 tsp. baking powder, a dash of salt, and 1/2 Tb. butter (just cut in). Turned out fantastic, good thick pudding sauce with great chocolate flavor. This is a keeper!

I agree with another reviewer that this tasted like it was missing something. Maybe since it dosent have the egg that normal cakes have. It reminded me of a "depression" cake that they used to make during the war when dairy was hard to come by. I did enjoy it thougth and it was nice to make such a small serving size, but I just don't think i will make it again. Thanks for posting.

Superb yummy chocolate pudding! Only change was a tablespoon of molasses replaced the brown sugar for the topping. Served with double cream. Easy to prepare & delicious = perfect recipe!
