Rich Chocolate Pudding Cake Recipe

Easy Chocolate Recipe

I changed this chocolate pudding cake recipe from the original since when I tried it for the first time, it was too fluid. I just reduced the amount of water, and that did the trick.

This rich chocolate cake recipe doesn't use chocolate but dark cocoa powder. I recommend using the Dutch-processed one, but if you don't have it, or cannot buy it, use a brand that you like. chocolate pudding cake recipe

This cake is best when served warm, so if you like to bake it beforehand, you can reheat it in the microwave. You can serve it plain or with a scoop of ice cream on top.

You should store the cake in a refrigerator, but since the form is small, you won't have many. I really hope that you will enjoy this chocolate pudding cake recipe.
