This was a great treat for us who are trying to eat healthy and lose weight! I used organic sucanat instead of sugar and it was very good. I used milk chocolate chips, as that is what I had, and it was killer good! I used a special blend of coffee that my husband mixes at the store, with a lot of Kona coffee in it. This is definitely a recipe we'll use again and again.
Chocolate-Fudge Pudding Cake
When you have a craving for a comforting dessert, try this pudding cake, which forms its own rich-tasting sauce as it bakes. The coffee flavor is subtle, but it adds complex depth to the cake's flavor.

Very good cake! Mine wasn't as moist and "pudding-y" as I expected it would be, but it was satisfying for a low-calorie chocolate cake. Next time I would omit the chocolate chips, since it was a bit too rich with them for me. I would probably cook it a bit less, too, so it would more of a pudding and a bit moister.
This is an amazingly-chocolately-oozing-with-joy cake! Easy and delicious. Love this recipe.
The batter was so dense that the hot coffee and brown sugar mixture poured on top just before baking was never incorporated into the cake. No cake formed on the top with a sauce underneath. This recipe was a big disappointment.
First things: Get a good quality chocolate chip. You can really taste the chocolate chips in this (they make up close to 50% of the flavor), and if you use a cheaper brand you'll definitely taste it. I used Nestle, and I wish I would have gone with a higher quality bakers chocolate instead. The "pudding" is basically like a runny chocolate sauce, you can definitely taste the coffee in it. It's nice, because it works as a frosting so you can cut a slice and then drizzle it with the sauce. You can really taste the whole-wheat flour, my roommate said it made the cake have an under taste of pancake mix. The cake I made was definitely a little dry, but I bought ice cream to go with it, so it made up for the dryness. It's not the best cake, but it's better than those pre-made cake mixes, and it's great for mixing with ice-cream. I'll make it again because I have a bunch of ingredients left over, but after I run out I'll probably try a different recipe.
Another pro: this is a very easy to make cake. I don't have a mixer (only a whisk), and I found this to be very convenient. It only took about 10 min. to get everything mixed and in the oven.
So, if you're looking for something you can make quickly and easily this is a great option.
