Martha’s Chocolate Pudding Cake is an old fashioned dessert that your family is sure to love!
This recipe has many names. No matter what you call it, it is delicious!
I have heard this called chocolate pudding cake, chocolate cobbler, fudge cake, brownie pudding cake, and many other things. They all produce a delicious cake with a pudding layer that is rich and delicious.
I love this recipe because it makes a dessert that is part cake and part pudding. It is pretty easy to put together and contains ingredients that I usually have in my pantry.
This recipe came from Martha Stewart years ago. I saw it on her TV show, back in the early days of it. Probably 2003 or 2004. I have been making it ever since.
I have used the recipe so much that I laminated it so that nothing would happen to it. Well, I recently lost it. I tore my kitchen, recipe box, and stack of recipes apart. It was no where to be found. I went to the Martha Stewart website to print off the recipe again. I could not find it on her site either. They no longer have it posted.
I was so disappointed. But I finally found the recipe. I had put it in a pile where it did not belong. I should know better than to do that. I am so glad that I can now make it again. I wanted to post it so that I would not lose it again.
Be sure to read this recipe all the way through before you start it. It is easy but it has a few steps.

Chocolate Pudding Cake
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
Pudding layer that you pour on top:
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups boiling water
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Stir together flour, 1/3 cup cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, regular sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla.
- Add to flour mixture and stir until combined.
- Spread evenly into a greased 11×7 Pyrex or similar sized dish. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl whisk together remaining 1/3 cup cocoa, brown sugar, and boiling water. Carefully pour evenly over batter.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes. It is a little hard to tell when this is done. You want the top of it to look cake like but the bottom of it will be like pudding. 30 minutes it what it takes in my oven.
- This is best when it is warm served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. But it is really good no matter what. The combination of cake and warm pudding is just too good.
