Dessert Recipes : Dark Chocolate Pudding Cake

This is the yummy little cake I made for Jess tonight. I found the recipe online, but changed it a bit so that I could bake it in ramekins. I wanted to do this because the cakes taste best chilled and the ramekins come with handy dandy lids for storage in the fridge.

Here's the recipe:

Dessert Recipes : Dark Chocolate Pudding Cake

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp special dark cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup special dark cocoa
1 cup hot water


Mix the first eight ingredients together. Pour into sprayed ramekins. Mix the brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa. Sprinkle over the batter. Pour hot water over the entire top surface. Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes.

The topping sinks through the cake to form a pudding layer at the bottom. Tastes best chilled, but can be served at room temperature or even warm (if you can't wait!).

I dressed it up with a little powdered sugar and two fresh strawberries.
