Saucy Fudge Pudding Cake

Sarah sent this one in.

This cake is a recipe from an old 1920's school book. I dated a guy in high school who's mom used to make it. I was absolutely crazy about it. I have been searching for this recipe for years and I finally got it from a lady I work with. It is easy to make and you only need one bowl!


1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 white sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Stir together in bowl and add:
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter

Mix altogether. It will make a very thick batter. Pour into a ungreased 8 inch casserole pan.
In empty bowl (same one you mixed the batter in), mix:

3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 3/4 cup boiling water

Stir to dissolve sugar.
Pour over batter and do not mix!
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.


This is best served hot with vanilla ice cream. When it is finished, you have a chocolate cake on top and hot fudgy pudding underneath. You can increase the recipe and make it as big as you like. It always turns out!

Oh my gosh! I loved this! And so did everyone at our Memorial Day get together! I had my doubts when I was mixing it up... but I just trusted the recipe. The only change I made was instead of all-purpose flour and baking soda, I used self-rising flour. There was absolutely NONE left... and I even doubled the recipe!
