Is this a pudding or a cake? As the dessert bakes, the cake rises to the top, leaving a fudgy layer of pudding below. An easy, excellent dessert that everyone loves. Serve warm, topped with whipped cream or ice cream.

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose white flour
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons baking powder
2-1/4 cups white sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 cups milk
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Topping:
2-1/4 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
5-1/4 cups boiling water

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan.

Into a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, 6 tablespoons cocoa, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Combine the milk, oil, and vanilla and add to the dry ingredients. Beat until smooth. Pour into the baking pan.

In a medium-size bowl, combine the brown sugar, ¾ cup cocoa, and boiling water. Mix until smooth. Gently pour over the batter. Bake for 35 minutes. Serve warm.

Yes, please don't restrict

Yes, please don't restrict the recipes. It isn't necessary to remove real food. Anyone thinking not-fat can use that type of recipes, but please don't take away from us who do not have this problem. There should be room for both.

Love it.keep it coming.

Love it.keep it coming. Sometimes we need a LITTLE SUGAR:-)

Way too much sugar! A dessert

Way too much sugar!
A dessert such as this may have been fine for Aunt Bea to serve in Mayberry, but in the real world, with obesity and diabetes epidemics running rampant in America, do you really want to feature a dessert that contains 2 pounds of sugar? That's what the 4 1/2 cups equate to. I would have expected the Farmers Almanac to promote more healthful life and food choices.

Almanac, please don't

Almanac, please don't restrict your recipes to only "healthy" ones. I look forward to trying this cake, and for those concerned about sugar, cut it down or use artificial sweeteners, or make something else. This is a treat not to be eaten on a daily basis. Keep our options open please!

We like to have a variety of

We like to have a variety of recipes that will appeal to a variety of people. If you want to make the recipe, try cutting down on the amount of sugar. It may still be to your liking.
