got chocolate?

Man, oh man. Do I LOVE finding new blogs to pore over. Wanna know why? This is why.Chocolate Pudding

This is Cassity’s Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. I stumbled across Cassity’s blog, Remodelaholic, through someone else’s blog (wish I could remember who, but I had a lot of new blogs going on today; new blog overload!), and turns out she hosts a link party for recipes every Sunday. Before even submitting my own link, I literally ran to the kitchen to give this recipe a whirl.Chocolate Close Up

This dessert is a choco-holics dream. Super easy, super fast, super chocolate-y. I managed to make it while Jeff was preparing an amazing chicken for our dinner, without getting in his way; a true testament to this dessert’s ease.

Please, make your life better and give it a try:

Cassity’s Microwaved Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

(serves 2)

Combine:

  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp of baking powder
  • a small pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp of melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp of milk
  • *Optional: chopped pecans or walnuts in desired amount

Mix above ingredients together and split evenly between two large ramekins (7-10 oz); wider coffee mugs would work too.

In another bowl mix together :

  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of cocoa

Sprinkle half of the mixture over each ramekin

Pour 1/4 cup of boiling water over each ramekin

Place one ramekin on a small plate (in case of overflow) and microwave for 1 minute – 1 minute 30 seconds

Serve with vanilla ice cream! (we had to skip the ice cream part as there was none in the house :/ )Chocolate done

Seriously. About 5 minutes of minimal effort for a dessert that made me completely forget about the Plague of 2011 which is currently sweeping across 406. Chocolate cures all. The dessert actually reminded me of the boxed chocolate pudding cake I use to make with my friends after school in high school. But better. Homemade always = better.

Oh, and that chicken Jeff cooked? Well, it speaks for itself…Chicken

…As does the soup he also made from it. Gotta love a man who makes C.N.S. when there is a house full of sickies! God love him :)Chicken Soup

Special thanks again to Cassity at Remodelaholic! xo

    Although sometimes I will admit it is best not to find these easy recipes out, cause it takes no time at all for the perfect dessert! Yikes! All of our diets are running for the hills screaming!

  4. Looks bloody marvellous.. but me and his Lordship are on the post Christmas [because we stuffed ourselves senseless] diet for a few weeks.
    I promise to try it in March.

  5. ohhh yes Jo, it got made once here, and then I pretty much had to hide the cocoa for I too am on the diet wagon. But man it’s tempting when you need a good chocolate fix. Bittersweet, finding recipes like that :P
