The more I read pudding recipes (i.e. the cake type of puddings), the more I crave them. I’ve only made pudding once and enjoyed it. Oddly, I never grew up with them even though my family originated in England where such puddings are commonplace.
I especially like this recipe – the chocolate sauce on the bottom sounds like a good enough reason to try this soon!
Chocolate Fudge Pudding
1 cup sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup packed brown sugar
Sift flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cocoa. Add milk, shortening and vanilla, mix only until smooth. Add pecans.
Place into a greased, shallow quart baking dish [note: read recipe for full instructions]. Pour 1 1/2 cups boiling water over the top.
This pudding when baked has a chocolate sauce on bottom and cake on top.
Bake in a moderate oven 350F for 40 minutes. Serve warm with cream.
