chocolate pudding cake



My mom found this recipe and said it is just like the kind her Grandma used to make... so you know it has to be good!

Well, it was amazing. I had to hold back because I am trying to lose 5 pounds before summer. But, it was hard not to eat the whole thing.

Old Fashioned Chocolate Pudding Cake

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Sauce:
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups boiling water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl,stir together flour,
baking powder, cocoa and salt. 
Add sugar, butter, milk and vanilla and
mix together until 'just mixed' 
Spread out batter in  a lightly oiled
8x8 baking dish. 
Set aside.In a medium bowl, mix
together the sugar and cocoa.
Sprinkle evenly on top of the
cake mixture. 
Carefully pour the boiling water
over the top.
NOTE: DO NOT MIX TOGETHER..
it will do what it is supposed to do in the oven. 
Bake 40 minutes. 

When you are done the cake will magically
be on top and the pudding will be on the bottom!

  6. Do you know the history of this cake? I am just wondering because I have heard it was a popular recipe in early Utah pioneer days. I make a similar version every July 24th.

    Thanks for this post!

  28. I love the fact that this cake is called a pudding cake, but there's not boxed mix of any kind in it. Bravo!
