My mom used to make this Chocolate Pudding Cake for us when we were little. It’s one of those that carries fond memories with it. I think she made it most when we had unexpected visitors and she wanted to put something delicious together quickly. No need for icing on this cake. It is a sweet chocolaty combination of cake and pudding.
This is made in three easy layers:
- wet cake mixture
- dry pudding mixture
- and hot water.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
- Water: 2 cups boiling water.
- Dry Pudding Mixture:
- 2/3 cup sugar
