Fabulous Chocolate Pudding Cake

Posted on May 28th, 2014 by host

If you’ve ever longed for a go-to dessert to welcome new neighbors, express warm wishes to a convalescing neighbor, or put the finishing touches on your next pot-luck social, this recipe may well be it. It misses our Five or Fewer cooking category by containing seven ingredients, but the speed with which you can dump, mix, and bake more than makes up for a couple of extra pantry staples it requires. It’s a chocolate cake without tasting too rich, and it the pudding and sour cream combo make it the moistest cake we’ve ever tasted. Enjoy.
