Chocolate is my obsession! So you can imagine my delight when I discovered this Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. The bottom layer literally transforms into hot fudge when baking, so it is ready to be scooped out immediately and served with ice cream.

This cake was rich and tasted absolutely incredible! If you are a chocolate lover like myself, put this cake on your must try list! It is fabulous!

    Just tried this earlier for my hubby's birthday and it was like heavenly delight! Though it is sweeter than most of the cakes I had and baked before, this will definitely be one of my favorites and a go-to recipe for my hubby since he cannot have eggs in any of his food. I'm sure this will be a hit next time with any of our family gatherings. But will have to cut a bit on the sur though. My kids love it too
    especially that ooey-gooey chocolate at the bottom of the pan. And indeed, goes BEST with ice cream!

    It's the cooking time really the same if you use 9inch or 11x17 pan? I would think it would be different? What about a 9x13 pan?
