Fudge Batter Pudding- Woman's Day Collectors Cookbooks
I went through my Woman's Day Collector's Cookbooks and found one about chocolate it is from 3/1979. I haven't made a fudge pudding cake in a long time but whenever I go to Home Town Buffet I always have the pudding cake for dessert. Yummy when served warm.
Fudge Batter Pudding- "During baking, cake layer forms on top and rich sauce on bottom."
1 cup flour
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
1/2 cup chopped nuts (the ones I have had have not had nuts in them)
3 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup cocoa, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 2/3 cups hot water
Heavy cream, milk or vanilla ice cream
In greased deep 2-quart round casserole mix well flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, the nuts, 3 tablespoons cocoa, the baking powder and salt; set aside. Mix milk, butter and vanilla; stir into flour mixture to blend well. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/3 cup cocoa and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Pour on water. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 40 minutes or until pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Spoon out at once into dessert dishes, serving some sauce with cake. Pass cream. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
