Quick and Easy Chocolate Fix!

A little bit of a detour from my usual blog content, but it seems that beauty bloggers/readers of beauty blogs are also fans of good food.  So here is a recipe for a super simple chocolate pudding cake.  This cake is quick and easy to make, doesn’t need many ingredients (one of the reasons I love this is because I usually have the ingredients on hand), and it makes its own chocolate sauce!

You will need:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used olive oil and it worked fine)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt together.  Add the milk, oil, and vanilla and mix.  It will be a very thick consistency, don’t worry, this is normal!  Spoon the batter in an 8 inch square greased baking pan.

In a separate bowl, mix together 1/3 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.  Sprinkle this evenly over the batter.  Then pour 1 cup of boiling water over the whole thing, do not mix!  I know this sounds bizarre, but trust me.

Bake at 177 C (350 F) for about 25-30 minutes.  As the cake bakes, a layer of chocolate pudding forms at the bottom with lovely moist chocolate cake layered on top.  Remove and serve hot, excellent with vanilla ice cream.

Let me know what you think or if you decide to give this a try!
