Chocolate Pudding Cake
Watch the video for this recipe:
This Chocolate Pudding Cake is one of the easiest chocolaty cakes you can ever prepare. While baking, this cake separates into a chocolate cake at the top and a thick chocolate sauce at the bottom. It is very moist and full of flavor, a perfect treat for whenever you need a quick decadent dessert.
This dessert is very easy to prepare, there is no need for an electric mixer, all you need is a whisk. The cake batter comes together in a minute. A mix of sugar and cocoa is then sprinkled on top of the batter and everything is covered with hot water. It is that easy. We really love this chocolate dessert, especially served with berries and ice cream that is drizzled with the thick chocolate sauce. Let me know if you try this dessert. Enjoy!
