Christmas on the cheap Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

This weekend we had two extra children over for a sleepover. That would make a total of 6 girls including myself. And what girl doesn't like chocolate? I topped it with a scoop of ice cream which was a big hit with the girls. Enjoy!

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

1 1/4 cups  granulated sugar, divided
1 cup  all-purpose flour
1/2 cup  cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup of butter melted
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/4 cups hot water

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees

2. Stir together 3/4 cup granulated sugar, flour, 1/4 cup cocoa,  baking powder and salt.  Stir in milk butter and vanilla; beat until smooth.  Pour batter into ungreased 9 inch square baking pan. Stir together remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar and remaining 1/4 cup cocoa; sprinkle mixture evenly over batter.  Pour hot water over top.  Do not stir.

3.  Bake 35-40 minutes or until center is almost set.  Let stand for 15 minutes; spoon into dessert dishes, spooning sauce from bottom of pan over top.

Makes about 8 servings

This would be a great gift for a neighbor or would be great for taking to a family get together.  Stays warm for a long time and by the time you get to your family it will be nice and warm.  I recommend using organic ingredients as much as possible.  My cocoa was not organic but as soon as my cocoa is gone its in with the organic.

Note:I could not get a good picture of this no matter how I did it. I found this picture online from The Canadian Baker which is a great blog. Its packed full of amazing recipes.
