Chocolate Pudding Cake

This time it's not me who baked this cake, but my sis :)
Lately she's inspired to bake quite a number of cakes by Martha Stewart
It's apparently too irresistable to ignore those yummy pictures displayed in her IPad apps
This was actually not the first, but second bake she did, the first one was brownies which I simply forgot to take a snap of. By the time I remembered, it's gone LOL

This chocolate pudding cake looked just like a piece of brownie isn't it?
But once you sink your teeth on it, you'll know that it's not
It's so very rich, moist, fudgy, deep dark intense kind of chocolate cake, thanks to the fudgy batter mixed together with the cake batter

Very easy to prepare, no mixer required -> her favorite (mine too, actually LOL)

It's not easy actually to get a nicely cut piece like the two pieces in the pic below, cos this cake is supposed to scoop to eat, ideally with vanilla ice cream, but I was too freaked out with the calories that I skipped the ice cream :)



Somehow I couldn't find the recipe in Martha's website, it's only available in her IPad app
Here it is...

What you need:

For the cake:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
---> sift together the 4 dry ingredients above
2 large eggs (or 3 small), lightly beaten
1 cup sugar
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melt and cool
3/4 cup fresh milk
2 tsp vanilla extract

For the fudge:
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup boiling water

20cm round baking dish, greased lightly

To prepare the cake batter:
  1. Whisk the beaten eggs and sugar til it dissolved, add in melted butter, whisk to combine
  2. Add in milk and vanilla, stir til just combined
  3. Fold in dry ingredients til well combined
  4. Pour to greased dish
To prepare the fudge batter:
  1. Whisk the 3 ingredients til well combined and pour on top of the cake batter, only pouring on the centre part
Last step:
Bake on preheated oven of 175degC for 30-35minutes, when skewer comes out with crumbs

Best to serve warm

  5. Hi I just made the pudding but sorry find it a bit dense and very sweet for me
    even when i use half cup white sugar. For my taste i shd have reduced the fudge sugar to half cup too.

    There is a similar cake from mimi cyber kitchen which my gal loves. You have to bake in a pyrex with lid bcos the topping will rise up as you bake. So the batter has to be 2 inches from top of the baking pyrex else you get overflow.
