Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

Today I made a favorite of my husband’s Hot Fudge Pudding Cake.  Hubby’s mom used to make it and sadly, I don’t make it as often as I should but when I do, he sure appreciates it.


Here’s the recipe:

1 1/2 Cup flour
3 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/8 cup sugar

3 T. cocoa

1 1/2 C. nuts

3/4 C milk

3 T. margarine

1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar

6 T. Cocoa

Mix the flour, baking powder salt, 3 T. cocoa, sugar, nuts, milk, and margarine, stirring until blended. Don’t overmix! Pour into a 9×13 inch pan. Mix brown sugar and 6 T. cocoa and sprinkle over batter. Pour 2 2/3 C. hot tap water over all and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.

In the end, it turns out to be pretty good. Because how can you go wrong with chocolate? You can’t!

  1. We use to get these mixes up in Canada when we visited relatives, then I googled for a recipe and came us with all different flavors – butterscotch, fruit in the bottom along with the fudge flavored recipes. It’s a quick easy dessert. Thanks, from northern Iowa.
