Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

  • Author: adapted from Betty Crocker
  • Prep Time: 3 mins
  • Cook Time: 45 mins
  • Total Time: 48 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • First Layer
  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • Second Layer
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 3/4 cups boiling water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and white sugar for the first layer. Mix in the milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Spread evenly into the bottom of a small (8×8 or slightly smaller) baking dish.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa powder. Sprinkle evenly over the first layer.
  4. Pour the boiling water into the dish (I deflect it with a spoon so it doesn’t make huge holes) and bake for 45 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
