Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

This cake is amazing!! It is low fat (if you use fat free milk it's non-fat!) and has it's very own fudge sauce to go with it! Can you really ask for more....I don't think so. I make this all the time and it is perfect pared with vanilla ice cream.

1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fat free milk
1/3 cup applesauce
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/4 cup HOT water

1. Heat oven to 350.
2. Stir together 3/4 cup sugar, flour, 1/4 cup cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir in the milk, applesauce and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Pour into a greased 9x9 baking dish.
3. In another bowl, stir together the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, and remaining 1/4 cup cocoa. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the batter in pan. Next, pour the hot water over top of the dry mixture. I know this sounds weird, but trust me, this is how the yummy sauce is made. DO NOT STIR, just pour it over the top and place it carefully into the oven.
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the center is set. Let stand for 15 minutes then spoon into dishes, spooning the delicious fudge sauce off the bottom and top with whipped cream and ice cream. You will be in heaven!!

  1. I am so glad you put this recipe up. It reminds me of the trips my mom used to take us on to San Luis Obispo for Chocolate Soup. Delicious!
