unsweetened cocoa powder
I think the reason for the poor reviews is that people don't know what a "Pudding" is. A "Pudding" is a dense, rich cake. Sometimes with it's own sauce baked in. This is supposed to be cake like on top and have a sauce beneath it. Let it cool before eating and the sauce gets thicker. Serving it with ice cream or custard will cut down on the sweetness if you don't like your desserts sweet. I think the person who got a "salty" result may have used baking soda instead of baking powder.
Made this for a freind of mine and she really liked it topped with ice cream and warmed up. :)
We really liked this. Based on some other reviews I did modify this slightly and got terrific results. The cake part was the same but I reduced the sugar and water to 3/4 cup each for the 'pudding'. I used light brown sugar and got a thick pudding consistancy under the brownie. It baked in a convection oven for 35 minutes and I did let it cool and served it warm! Forget about leftovers!
I had a happy accident with this recipe. Half way through mixing it up I realized I only had a half cup of brown sugar left in the house. So I used it and a half cup of water and hoped for the best. Gooey underneath, a brownie crust on top, there wasn't any of the wateriness that people complained about. I made it in a round cake pan and it was so good! I think I'll probably make it like this again in the future. I used dutch processed cocoa too so it came out very dark and deliciously chocolatey. Will be perfect with ice cream.
This was absolutely delicious and perfect for my pregnant chocolate craving!! I have to say though that I tasted the batter and added more cocoa. One tablespoon cocoa just wasn't enough. I ended up with 3 tablespoons cocoa in the brownie batter and 2 in the brown sugar mixture. It came out very pudding like and was just delicious. The only other little change I made was to use butter instead of shortening because it's what I had. Awesome recipe!!
Oh my gosh! This certainly took care of any chocolate cravings I'll have for a long time. I quadrupled the recipe and baked it in a 9 x 13 stoneware baker to take to a card game get together. It took a little longer to bake than the recipe indicated, but the results were soooooo good with vanilla ice cream. I will definitely be keeping this recipe!
Tasted a little bit baking-powdery to my husband. I took the advice of others and used more chocolate powder in the brown sugar mixture, used 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup water. It was very good with vanilla ice cream.
Excellent, elegant, easy dessert, especially served with vanilla ice cream. I added an extra tablespoon of cocoa to batter (along with an extra tablespoon of butter) and to pudding mixture for a deep, rich chocolate. Yum!
