Favorite dessert in my recipe box. Easy to make and even easier to eat too much of. If you like old fashion molasses cookies you need to try this recipe.
I thought this was really good. It was a little gooey at the bottom which is part of what made it so good. Make sure you warm it up though it is SO much better warm then room temperature! My husband liked it too but he prefers a regular cake to the gooey kind.
An easy recipe to put together, and it made the house smell wonderful. Just right for a cold winter's night. The cake was moist and full of rich flavors. Treat your friends and family to this tasty cake.
Just read recipe and can't wait to try it. It sounds absolutely delicious! I was surprised by the people who reviewed recipe and didn't know that the sauce was meant to be there. They need to try Chocolate Pudding Cake, Lemon Pudding cake......and other yummy pudding cakes!!!
This is for the people who asked if it was supposed to have the liquid on the bottom..YES..when you see pudding cake it usually has a sauce on the bottom and cake on top. It is supposed to be that way..When you scoop it out you flip it and spoon the sauce over it. The picture does not show it. Almost in idea like a Molten cake but not individual. Some recipes end up with alot of sauce and some with less but yes it is supposed to be there.
