Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

"Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love." From the song "Burning Love" (lyrics by Dennis Linde)

I know I've mentioned this more than once, but food is love, right? And nothing says love like chocolate!

Years ago, my mom was making a yummy dessert called hot fudge pudding cake. And this was long before I'd ever heard of hot or molten lava cake.

I believe this recipe comes from The Cincinnati Enquirer. It's easy and low fat, because unlike other lava cakes, it's not loaded with butter and whole eggs.

Make this "hunk of burning love" for someone you love this weekend! Enjoy!

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

1 cup flour
2 t baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
2 T cocoa powder
1/2 cup skim milk
1 T canola oil
1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)

4 T cocoa powder
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 3/4 hot water (heated, not boiling)

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8 inch square pan with cooking spray; set aside. For cake, sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and cocoa. Stir in milk, oil and nuts; mix well. Spread in prepared pan.

For topping, combine cocoa and brown sugar. Sprinkle over batter. Pour hot water over entire cake. Bake 45 minutes. Serve warm. Makes six servings.

What's your favorite chocolate dessert?
