Baked Chocolate Pudding

It's that time of year again when the children head back to school.  One of our family's annual traditions is making homemade pudding on the first day of school.  It's a treat that we look forward to after dinner and we can share our day over a sweet gooey delight.   This year, I thought I would liven things up and try a baked pudding.

This dessert is a lot like the hot fudge cakes they serve at buffets or restaurants.  My children love the hot syrup over ice cream.  I figure I can't lose.

This was a simple recipe and very easy.  I can't wait to indulge!

Here's what you will need:

First layer:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Second layer:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon cocoa
Third layer:
  • 1 cup cold water

Here's what you do:

Sift dry ingredients together.  Add milk, butter, and vanilla.  Pour into a 9x9 inch baking dish.  I use a 9x13 pan and double the recipe.

Mix together brown sugar, white sugar, and cocoa.  Sprinkle on top of the first layer.

Pour water over all. 

Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees.  It doesn't look very appealing, but once you cut into it you will discover a chocolate syrup formed in the bottom.  We like to serve this warm with ice cream or whipped topping.

What are your first day of school traditions?

I'm confused. You don't mix all the dry ingredients first, do you? Otherwise you wouldn't have any left for the 'topping' before the water.

I just reread that. Okay- you mix the first ingredients to the salt. The second layer is made with the sugars and cocoa. The third layer is water. I will edit to make it clearer. Thanks for the heads up- I am familiar with it so I didn't catch it.

I hope I made it easier to follow. I broke it down into ingredients and layers. : )
