My toddler said he wanted chocolate pudding, but recoiled when he saw it (it tasted fine). So I had some prepared pudding that neither child would eat (who knew!), so I made this chocolate cake! It's soft and moist! A week-old forgotten piece was a bit rubbery (but it was NOT stale!), so don't let it sit around. It won't replace my main chocolate cake recipe (Hershey's Deep Dark Chocolate Cake), but this cake is great for its niche!
I made this cake for Shabbat dessert, but it didn't last... I had to make a second batch! I used non-dairy pudding in order to make it Parve, and it still tasted great. Thanks!
Excellent cake! My only change to the recipe was to use a chocolate soy pudding (0.5% fat) because I did not want the cake to be dairy. Aside from that, I followed the instructions and was please to see a firm yet moist cake. It was a hit with everyone who had a piece. As an additional benefit, it freezes beautifully! Kol hakavod, Smadar!
