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!

    Excellent gooey chocolate taste. Easy to make would like to try to cut out a bit of sugar...but awesome as is if you want a real treat.

    I have a recipe close to this from my grandmother. I make it for my dad every Thanksgiving and Christmas since my grandmother passed. I've never heated the water though. Wonder if it makes a difference.

    I tried this recipe last night it was lovely, thanks for the recipe.

  11. Maureen

    Could you prepare it in the morning and put it in the oven 45 minutes before you eat?

  12. Megan

    This is very yummy! Just made it tonight! What I am wondering though-are you supposed to use all of the brown sugar mixture on top? Thank you!! We divided it in half and made a treat for two...yummmm😊

  13. Rashi

    When you say Cocoa - I'm supposed to use unsweetened cocoa (like Hintz), right?

  14. Kiki

    I just moved and only have some deeper aluminum pans available hopefully it will work

    Looks delicious

  16. Florence

    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?

  17. Lorraine

    I made the Hot Fudge Pudding Cake for our family get together. I substituted water for the milk for my Vegan son. It was delicious. We put vanilla ice cream on top and Vegan "ice cream" for my son. Everyone loved it and I will definitely make it again

    I love the texture. But the flavour is lacking in richness. It has a bland sweetness. It could be me, but I did follow the directions carefully.

    Made this last night and was a little confused with the boiling hot water at the end, but did as the recipe said.... buddy..... this is a keeper! If you're on the fence about this one, do it. You're guests will love you.
