Mocha Pudding Cake:
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar, divided
6 Tbsp. cocoa powder; divided
1/2 cup milk
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup strong brewed coffee
Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, 2/3 cup sugar, and 4 Tbsp cocoa powder in a large bowl. Add in milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Mix together until blended. Spread batter evenly into 8×8″ greased pan.
Mix together chocolate chips, 1/3 cup sugar, and 2 Tbsp. cocoa. Sprinkle mix over batter.
Bring coffee to a boil in a small sauce pan. Pour boiling coffee evenly over batter. (Do not stir.)
Bake at 350 F for 25-30 mins — until cake springs back when lightly touched.
This cake was delicious. Very weak on the coffee flavor, but still delicious. It comes out with some of the batter unbaked — I think this is the pudding aspect of the cake. Plus you can eat the leftover batter because there are no eggs. 🙂
