From the kitchen of:

 Penzey's Spices magazine summer 2013


 1 c all-purpose flour

2/3 c cocoa powder, divided

3/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

2 large eggs

1 c sugar

6 TB butter (3/4 stick), melted and cooled

1/2 c milk

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

3/4 c brown sugar, firmly packed

1 1/3 c boiling water


 Preheat oven to 350°. 

Mix together flour, 1/3 cup cocoa, the baking powder, and the salt. 

Separately, beat together eggs, sugar butter, milk, and vanilla.

Gradually add the dry to the wet ingredients, and mix well. 

Spread the batter into an ungreased 8x8 pan. 

Mix the remaining cocoa and the brown sugar with the boiling water until everything is dissolved. Pour over the batter. 

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center coves out with some crumbs, or it has risen and is pulling away from the sides of the pan. 

Don't overbake!

Serve hot. The "pudding" name comes from the delicious saucy goo that will be on the bottom of the pan. Make sure to spoon that on top of the pieces. Serve with ice cream (optional).
