Soupy brownie

This looked good but came out awful. A bland brownie sitting in a pool of coffee.


according to the serving size its not low cal. may as well make a normal cake.

You can make it thicker

There is a similar recipe on this site for Chocolate-Fudge Pudding Cake. The difference is that it bakes at 350 for 30-35 minutes, so according to reviews it turns out thicker. That recipe also uses splenda for those of us who are watching our blood sugar. Also, remember that the amount of flour differs each time you measure it in a cup instead of by weight, so you could be getting a littl etoo much or not enough flour which could cause the "pudding" to be more like syrup. Of course, if you go into it thinking you'll get a sauce for your cake & not pudding you will be happy either way. ;-)

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

I do not know why this recipe has the word pudding in it. You can't mix coffee and brown sugar and come up with pudding. You get very sweet coffee underneath you cake.
I would prefer to make the 2 minute microwave chocolate cake in a mug, make some sugar free chocolate pudding, and layer with vanilla yogurt on top. I prefer to drink my coffee with my cake. I don't like my cake floating in overly sweetened coffee

No pudding!

It's a self saucing

It's a self saucing pudding..the coffee and sugar thicken with the other ingredients to form a sauce. Did yours not work?
