Eggless Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake

Hello Friends,

I have been lazy last few days in doing proper cooking, too lazy after a blogging marathon... lol :)

I made this superb looking and tasting cake yesterday (Sunday) morning for a friend's house where we were invited for lunch. I absolutely loved the texture, taste and everything about it. There is this something great about gooey chocolate (I know my fellow chocoholics will agree with me). I saw this cake being prepared by Anne Thronton in a Food Network show called "Dessert First". Foe someone like me, it is the best program as I can always have dessert as the first course and of course the last course as well :)

This is a cake which will have a texture of brownie but will have some molten chocolate or the gooey part underneath and thus it is a pudding cake. Check the pictures and see the second pic and that is how the top will be like brownie and the bottom will have gooey stuff. It look me only 10 min. to prepare and about 30 min. to bake and about 15 more min. for cool-down. And, guess what, no eggs needed, isn't that wonderful and it is made from items that one usually has at home (like milk, butter, sugar and cocoa powder at home).

I had to make it after watching that episode and it won't be inappropriate to say that I was dying to try it out :) 

So, without further ado, here is the recipe (it is the same as hers, but felt like re-writing it in my blog).

Eggless Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake
Recipe Source

Pudding Cake
All-purpose Flour - 3 cups
Granulated Sugar - 1.5 cups
Cocoa Powder - 1/2 cup
Baking Powder - 4 tsps
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 1 cup (I used whole, but feel free to use any)
Butter - 2/3 cup, melted
Vanilla Extract - 3 tsps
Granulated Sugar - 1 cup
Brown Sugar - 1 cup
Cocoa Powder - 1/2 cup
Hot Water - 2.5 cups


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degree C.
  • Mix all dry ingredients for pudding cake in a bowl well. 
  • Add all wet ingredients in the dry ingredients and whisk well till all is incorporated. It will be thicker than usual cake batter.
  • Spread the cake dough/batter in an un-greased pan (9 inch or bigger).
  • Now, whisk all dry ingredients of topping in a separate bowl and add hot water to it and mix it well, till no lumps.
  • Pour this liquid on the cake batter (in the pan) and please do not mix it, just let the topping stand there.
  • Bake the cake for 45 minutes. You will see the top set and see a brownie like crust.
  • Take it out of the oven and do not touch for another 15 minutes, let it cool down.
  • This is a pudding cake and not a cake to cut into slices. The top of the cake will be like brownie and the bottom will have pudding consistency (check the pics).

Scoop out the cake into serving bowls and scoop the bottom liquid as well for that gooey texture. Serve it with your favorite ice-cream, if you like that combo. But, I like my warm gooey cakes without mixing with cold stuff, so I just enjoyed it as it is. Whatever you do, please do serve it warm !!!

Hope you will make and enjoy it. I can personally vouch on the recipe and the results !!!

That's all for now. Take care till next post.
