This was my
All. Time. Favourite.
dessert growing up ~
Little did I know it was SO easy to make!
It's great to whip up for those unexpected guests
or for your own family on an ordinary night
to make it extra special.
Dish up some
Your family will thank you...
ask me how I know. ;-)
Served warm straight from the oven with (or without)
a dollop of ice cream, it's ~
While it is baking the pudding forms
underneath and the cake rises to the top ~
OH. DEAR. ME!
~ Brownie Pudding Cake ~
"Better Homes and Gardens ~ New Cookbook"
~Cake Ingredients ~
1 cup Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 cup Milk
2 Tbsp Oil (I use Olive Oil)
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup Chopped Nuts (Walnuts or Pecans) ~
may be omitted
~ Sauce Ingredients ~
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1 3/4 cup Freshly boiled Water
(*I like LOTS of sauce...if you are like me,
you might want to adjust the sauce amounts
1 cup Brown Sugar
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
2 1/3 cup Freshly boiled Water
~ Method ~
Measure first 5 ingredients into bowl.
Mix together with a wire whisk.
In separate bowl, mix together the milk,
oil, and vanilla.
Mix the wet ingredients into the
dry, and mix until smooth.
Stir in the nuts (if desired).
Spread into greased casserole dish (8x8) ~
use a larger pan if you are increasing the sauce.
This batter is VERY thick and difficult to spread...
Mix together the brown sugar and cocoa powder
for the sauce and sprinkle over the cake batter.
Pour hot water over all.
Bake at 350* F for 35 to 45 minutes ~
watch closely after the 30 minute mark to be sure you
don't burn it!
You can test the cake with a toothpick ~
it should come out clean.
The cake rises to the top and looks like it's
cracked and the pudding bubbles underneath.
I hope you like it as much as we do!
Just be forewarned...it is very
