Got this out of Cooking Light. This is wonderful and not light on taste!

Yum! I love pudding cakes, they're super fast to make, use ingredients I always have on hand, and are usually low fat. Made this tonight as a very last minute dessert, and am pretty sure I made this recipe when it first came out in Cooking Light. Lots of mocha flavor, served with vanilla ice cream, and the whole family loved it. Thanks for sharing!
