Chocolate pudding by Movita Beaucoup
Serves 4-6. When baked, this pudding has chocolate sauce on the bottom with cake on top.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 6 tablespoons cocoa
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups boiling water
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and 2 tablespoons of the cocoa into a medium sized bowl.
Add the milk, melted butter and vanilla and mix until just combined. Stir in the pecans.
Spread the batter evenly in the bottom of a shallow 1 quart baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and remaining 4 tablespoons of cocoa. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the batter in the baking dish.
Then pour the boiling water over the top of the contents of the baking dish. Do not mix.
Bake for 40 minutes. Serve warm. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is a delightful garnish!
