You would think it has a truckload of butter and eggs with rich chocolate, but in actuality, it has only one egg, four tablespoons of butter, and uses cocoa powder! I call it--"the poor man's molten cake."
Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
1 1/4 cups King Arthur all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 T unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups hot water (you can also use hot coffee)
Preheat oven to 350F-degrees. Butter a 8-inch square baking pan or ceramic dish (that's what I used)
In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together and whisk to combine. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients (milk, egg, & vanilla extract). Add the wet ingredients to the dry, along with the melted butter and stir to combine. Spoon batter into the prepared baking dish and smooth the top.
I had such a wonderful time in Birmingham, UK and will share some of the dishes I had in the next post. I was so surprised how much the food had changed since I was there in 1993; fresh ingredients and some of the best bread I've ever had.
