Chocolate Pudding Cake
slightly adapted from allrecipes.com
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2/3 cup brown sugar (that's what the recipe called for.. I used a little less than that)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups hot water
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Stir together the flour, white sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Add milk and oil; mix well. Pour into an ungreased 8x8 square pan. Sprinkle brown sugar, remaining (1/4 cup) cocoa, and chocolate chips over the mixture. Add the vanilla to the 1 1/4 cups hot water, then pour the water over the top.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the surface appears dry. Serve warm with a spoon. Goes good with a big glass of ice cold milk or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream!! Roughly serves 4 people (depending on your serving size... uhh.. my husband and I almost ate the whole thing in one night...)...
