Figuring as I haven’t posted a good cake recipe in a while, I thought I’d give you a whopper today! Hot fudge pudding cake. Oh, yes. This one is all the name claims it to be and more. A cake like this should be called “magical” hot fudge pudding cake. Seriously.
When I was eight or ten, my Auntie Barb, who is my mom’s sister, gave me a cookbook for my birthday. The Better Homes and Gardens New Junior Cookbook. I remember loving it, and trying many of the recipes. Some recipes I made over and over again. Hot fudge pudding cake was, and is one of them.
There’s a reason I would call this delectable cake a magic cake. Actually a couple of reasons. First of all, you don’t need a bowl- all the ingredients are combined right in the pan! The second reason, is that in the oven something magical happens. What goes into the oven as a sloppy looking mess, comes out as a moist chocolate cake with a fudgy sauce! Perfect.
Seeing as it is Father’s Day coming up, hot fudge pudding cake may be a great option for your kids to make. It is in a children’s cookbook after all;)
I kid you not, though. Although this is a simple recipe, it is also definitely a winner!
