Chocolate Pudding Cake Cups

I HAVE no idea where I got this recipe...the card is yellow with age! The dense chocolate taste makes it rich with flavor, and it's a satisfying dessert topped with ice cream or whipped cream. I'm pleased to share one of my favorites with Reminisce EXTRA readers! -Helene Belanger, Denver, Colorado

    This was a good quick chocolate fix after my horrendous Monday! Love the fact that it only makes 2. I cooked them in 16 oz. custard cups for 20 minutes and they were perfect. The taste is a little different than the Hot Fudge Pudding cake I am used to.

    This is almost identical to a recipe my mom made when I was young. We called it "Hot Fudge Pudding". Yes, you can bake it in the oven, 350 for about 45 minutes. YUMMY!!

    This was a good, quick dessert. Ate it without ice cream or whipped cream. Nothing fancy, but a good chocolate fix.

    Is this cake meant to be served warm as there are no directions to cool the cake before serving?
