Cinnamon Chocolate Pudding Cake

Yesterday I spent trying to catch up on 3 weeks of minimal cleaning ☹. Ask me how much fun that was, or how much my head liked it lol… but the house is now clean again which means I can play again!!!

For now I thought I would share/repost one of our favourite fall/winter “comfort” desserts! 😊

I make this dessert a lot in the winter. It is warm, chocolatey, gooey and just an all round delicious dessert. I know it isn’t winter yet but it is fairly cool our right now so it seemed as good a time as any to make it again!



Here are all my ingredients, well except for the brown sugar because I always seem to forget to include something in the pictures! (Please excuse the gigantic bag of flour, I forgot to refill the bag I usually keep it in lol)


I started by mixing the white sugar, cocoa, salt, cinnamon and baking powder in my small roast pan. (The pan I usually use has the new mac & cheese recipe I tried in it)


Next I added the flour and mixed that into the cocoa mixture.



Now I added the milk, vegetable oil and vanilla.


And mixed this until it was smooth.


Next step is to sprinkle the brown sugar, second amount of cocoa and second amount of cinnamon all over the top of the prepared batter.


I poured 2 cups of boiling water over the top of the entire thing.


And baked it uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.


You can see the nice gooey chocolate sauce in the picture above. I scooped some into a bowl and served it with coffee for dessert
