Chocolate Pudding Cake

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. apple sauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 3/4 cup hot water
Mix the first eight ingredients together.
Pour into a 8" square baking pan that has been coated with cooking spray.
Mix the brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa.
Sprinkle over the batter.
Pour the hot water over the entire top surface.
Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.

The topping sinks through the cake to form a pudding layer at the bottom.

This cake tastes so rich it's hard to believe there's no fat or eggs in it.
We prefer it chilled, but it can be served ar room temperature, or even warm, if you can't wait.
It will keep for several days (but not in my house!), but DO NOT FREEZE.
If you do, the pudding will turn very watery.
