Hot Fudge Pudding Cake doesn’t require any decorating skills! It’s like chocolate cake and hot fudge all in one pan and the fudge sauce forms during the baking process! An easy dessert to put together and one delicious Hot Fudge Pudding cake to try! If your thinking this is just an under-cooked raw mess, there’s actually chunky cake pieces poking through the saucy mess! Though messy it could look quite appealing if served in little ramekins with a scoop (or two) of ice-cream. It also re-heats wonderfully in a toaster oven, just place into heat-proof bowls and heat up for 8-10 minutes then scoop vanilla ice-cream right before serving–just as delicious as freshly baked. This is one indulgent and rich dessert to try and the ice-cream tops everything off–it’s a must try dessert!

    Have you ever cooked this in a small crockpot? If so, should I pour half of the boiling water as a “middle”
    later and then on the very top, it’s gooey all the way through? Thanks!

      I havn’t tried a slow cooker method for this chocolate pudding cake but I have came across a recipe that did. It was basically the same way just in a slow cooker. So you can spread the batter into the crockpot then sprinkle the fudge topping over and add the boiling water, set to 3-4 hours over high.

    I tried this tonight.
    Cooking time was a bit more, and I’m still not sure if it should’ve been more cooked. But it’s delicious!
    I also ran out of ice cream, so decided to get creative and try marshmallows!

      Hi Anya,
      It is normal for the sauce to look really runny right from the oven but if you let it sit sometime it should thicken slightly. Thanks for the feedback:)
