Hot Fudge Pudding Cake (Microwave)

I grew up with a dessert called Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. It was a package mix. This is the closest to the original recipe I've had. Similar to other brownie cakes listed but less ingredients and microwave cooked. One of my all time favorites.

This is a good and rich dessert! So quick and easy to make too. Mine took the whole 12 minutes to cook, and the cake rose up on top of a nice thick sauce. This would be great for unexpected company as it can be made quickly with ingredients always on hand - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2009

Made this tonight and it was great! We loved it! It was so quick and easy and can be made at the last minute. I would recommend using a 9 inch pan as it overflowed in the 8 inch. We topped it with whipped cream. Delish! I would also recommend making it with real butter as well as that is part of what makes the flavor so superb. Thanks for a great recipe!

The concept was good and I liked the idea but it did not come out as good as I was hoping for. I wish it would have been sweeter and the consistency more of a glazy pudding inside the cake. I might try it again making just a few changes.
