"I THOUGHT this recipe sounded great, then realized it's one of my family favorites with another name: we call it Brownie Pudding because it bakes up like brownies over a fudgy thick pudding. We double it and bake in a 13x9" pan, using 2 cups boiling water on the top, and never worry about leftovers: it's even better cold the next day!"
