Brownie Pudding Cake

Last Friday was my son’s 2nd birthday. We had already celebrated with a party 2 weekends before so I didn’t have a lot of extra stuff planned. There was a Happy Birthday banner, a few balloons and some presents. Typical birthday items. So instead of buying more cupcakes, I chose to have him and my daughter help me make a cake. Now I have made the brownie pudding cake before for Harper’s birthday and not only is it ridiculously easy, it’s so yummy and a little more special than a typical cake.

The kids love to help me pour each ingredient in the bowl and mix it together. And I don’t have to worry about anything getting screwed up! It’s also egg and butter free so its nice if you don’t eat that or just forgot to pick it up at the store! It’s actually a throw back recipe from the 1930s and 40s when things like sugar, eggs and butter had to be restricted. But doesn’t lack any of the richness and chocolatey goodness you want in something called Brownie Pudding Cake!

Serve warm in bowls. Scoop cake and spoon pudding from bottom over the cake. Vanilla ice cream makes a great addition! (We forgot that at the store, but it didn’t even need it. The birthday boy didn’t mind!)
