Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by Chef darthur

I followed the directions and got a springy cake with pudding, indeed, at the bottom. But, the taste just was't for us. It was bitter, as if there was too little granulated sugar for the 6 Tablespoons of Hershey's Cocoa we used. I am so disappointed as I've used numerous recipes from the website and they all make me feel like a champion baker. With this, I am simply stumped and may try it again but with 4 T of chocolate rather than 6 and more granulated sugar. But, I am not skilled enough as an improvisor, so, I'm just stumped and will not use the recipe as printed again.
