I have to admit, I just couldn't manage to let this sit for the required hour after was just beckoning to me! :) This is my new favorite pudding cake, and it couldn't be any easier to make. I used bourbon instead of rum (I love bourbon and chocolate together); I could actually taste it in the finished cake. Yum! Thanks for the recipe.
