This is my husband's favorite recipe. Someone brought this to my Grandpa's funeral in 1968, and I've been making it since. The dark fudge cake over the hot pudding is delicious served with whipped cream or ice cream. This is very rich and will be loved by chocolate lovers!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Grease a 9x9-inch baking pan.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking powder, white sugar, 2 tablespoon cocoa powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  4. Stir in milk and butter until smooth.
  5. Fold in walnuts until just combined.
  6. Spread batter evenly in the prepared baking pan.
  7. Mix 1/4 cup cocoa and brown sugar in a small bowl; sprinkle mixture on top of the batter.
  8. Pour hot water over the batter.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven until the center of the cake is almost set, about 45 minutes. Brown sugar, cocoa, and hot water will combine to form a chocolate sauce that will settle to the bottom of the cake during baking.
  10. Best served warm.

This recipe is great. But, we always make sure we eat it right after it comes out of the oven. It isn't as good the next day. But, we usually don't have any left. Ooeeyyyyy Gooery!

I made this cake for my grand young 'uns and they loved it. I liked it too, but it was too "tame" for my wild & overactive taste buds. I'm an old-fashioned, country cookin', 67 yr old grandma who loves highly seasoned food. I tried this recipe because it is so similar to mine. In my recipe, I add 1 teaspoon vanilla to the batter; 2 teaspoons cornstarch and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the dry cocoa/brown sugar; equal parts hot water and hot milk. The cake is more flavorful and the sauce is creamier. (I use brown sugar in ALL chocolate batter.) Sometimes I would add a bit of flavor to the hot milk/water and lightly dust the top of the baked cake with powdered sugar. I've also made this cake by combining all the dry ingredients for the sauce/pudding, add the hot milk/hot water, mix well, pour over the batter. It worked for me! Deeeeelicious!!

Was excited to try this but not that impressed. Not enough chocolate flavor and too sweet. Prefer chocolate lava cakes -- richer flavor and not any more trouble, just as easy to prepare and makes for a much prettier presentation for company.
