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."

    I've been trying microwave mug cakes, but none of them ever taste fudgy like I crave. And the portions are always too small for my chocolate cravings. I have finally found it! This fudgy microwave cake is to die for! I loved it and it will be my go-to chocolate attack recipe from now on! I cooked mine about 8 mins. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

    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!

    This brings back memories for me too. My mother always bought the package mix of this cake. I thought your recipe was really good and it certainly mimicks the packaged variety without all the chemicals and yet with the same ease of preparation. This is so budget friendly and the ingredients are things found in any pantry on any given day. I did lightly grease the pan but otherwise followed the recipe. My kids loved it. Thx so much for sharing this.

    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.
