Made this with my 7 year old. He thought it was really cool how we poured the hot water over the cake! Great idea. The batter turned out to be a little too thick to pour on the baking pan, but we were able to spread it without too much trouble. Super moist and gooey.
I used less sugar maybe a total of 3/4 cup. The smell while baking was amazing. This taste great but we would have like more chocolate sauce. Thanks Marg :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game
This was fantastic! Just made it for the first time tonight. I used light margarine and we cut it into 12 servings which, if the former nutrition calculatons were correct, made ours 218 calories and under 2 grams of fat per serving (due to the light margarine). I also made my own baking powder, because the stuff you buy has aluminum in it, which we've been avoiding. For those interested, it's extremely easy to make. You just use two parts cream of tartar to one part baking soda. It was great!
I was a little skeptical about making this but it turned out great. it was a slight bit rich for my taste but my husband, who is a chocoholic loved it. it was soooo easy!
Thank you so much for this recipe! I am NOT a baker (just ask my kids) but I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. Easy, quick and sinfully delicious... it's definitely a keeper.
Awesomeness! I made this as a birthday cake because my MIL loves chocolate. A big hit. Thanks!
Mmmmmmm...this is delicious and very simple to make! Based on another review, I added an egg to the pudding, and it came out quite fluffy. I also added one more tbsp of cocoa to the pudding, and I'm glad I did. Thank you!
I tried this recipe when I couldn't find my mom's recipe for this. I really didn't care for this version. It didn't rise - it was really flat. I now add one egg. It makes a much fluffier cake.
I LOVE CHOCOLATE...but there was something missing. I loved the gooyness and it baked beautifully. But it was somewhat bland to me and my friends. We were a bit disappointed with the flavor. I will try it again tho, with some tweeks.
We make this a couple times each month. Soooooo good!! One word of caution - when you take it out of the oven, the pudding part may look really runny. DO NOT put it back in the oven - it will burn!! (I made this mistake the first time I made it!) The pudding will set pretty quickly after it is out of the oven. This is beyond delicious, especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
