Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

Hot fudge pudding cake. Sounds amazing, right? Not only is this incredibly easy to make, but it is perfect for any chocolate lovers out there!! My favorite way to serve this is straight out of the oven, with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Although not the prettiest cake to serve, this sure is one of the tastiest. Warm, moist cake with a chocolate fudge pudding layer that oozes out once scooped into servings bowls. Can’t beat that, huh?? I made this last week for my family and we sure enjoyed it! Next time you have company over, want a chocolate treat, or are looking for a tasty dessert, definitely try this!!
