Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For pudding, combine all ingredients in medium bowl; pour into greased 8 inch square baking dish. For topping, combine sugar and cocoa in small bowl; gradually stir in boiling water. Pour over pudding. Do not stir.
Bake 45 minutes. (Topping will sink and pudding will rise to the top.) Serve topped with sweetened whipped cream, if desired.

this recipe sounds oddly familar...wasn't it posted before but called hot fudge pudding cake ?
What's so great about this recipe is that it's exceptionally low in fat. I made (& misplaced) a similar recipe 10 or 12 years ago. It also included oat bran, so I'm eager to try this and substitute oat bran for some of the flour. Thanks, Robin! Liz
My husband makes a similar cake, but we use a lot less sugar in ours. A great recipe for a quick, easy and good dessert. We also make a lemon version.
carole would you share your version of lemon cake with us that sounds soooo....good
I am so happy to see this recipe!!! I had it years ago, used it for yrs, and somehow it had gone missing. My kids still keep asking me for the recipe, had to keep reminding them it was gone. Now I can give it to them, and make some for me! Sounds silly but we all enjoyed this little cake so much. Simple and the kids used to think it was so cool how it made the pudding. Thank you Robin.
