Chocolate Pudding Cake

This is a yummy little warm dessert that is simple to make.

Yield: 9 servings

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 40 min


1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups lowfat buttermilk, divided
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8x8-inch square pan.

2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, granulated sugar, 1/4 cup chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add oil and 1/2 cup buttermilk; stir until the thick batter is evenly moistened. Scrape batter into prepared pan and spread level.

3. In the same bowl (no need to wash), mix brown sugar with 1/4 cup cocoa and 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Scatter over batter in pan. Evenly pour remaining 1 cup buttermilk over brown sugar mixture; do not stir.

4. Bake until edges of cake feel firm and spring back when lightly pressed, about 40 minutes.

5. Let cool in pan on a rack at least 15 minutes. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature in bowls, scooping under cake to pan bottom to include pudding with each portion.

    What a great recipe!  I figured it would probably involve boxed pudding mix, but to my delight it does not!  This cake is definitely happening in my near future.
