Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding Cake

This dessert has a crazy name but it is decadent yet not too sweet. I discovered this recipe on the internet and made it for my husband’s birthday last night. It bakes into a cake with a gooey chocolate pudding-sauce underneath and homemade whipped cream on top. It was a big hit and really delicious.

  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 3/4 cup of fine white sugar
  • 4 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift all ingredients into a large bowl. Set aside.

  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 1/2 ounces butter, melted (1 stick plus 1 tbsp)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten

Combine all ingredients into a large measuring cup until mixed thoroughly. Pour into dry mixture & beat with hand mixer until smooth & creamy. Spray 8 1 cup baking ramekins with cooking spray and pour cake mixture into ramekins to one inch from the top. Place on a baking sheet.

  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water

Combine all ingredients & mix thoroughly. Pour 1/4 to 1/3 cup on top of the cake batter in each ramekin. I know it sounds weird but trust me… Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes. Top with whipped cream and serve. Thanks to my neighbor Cheryl for the extra ramekins. Enjoy.

Whipped Cream

  • 1 pint of whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients with a hand blender for 5-7 minutes until fluffy.
