This decadent chocolate pudding cake has a fluffy layer of cake which sits atop a rich chocolate sauce created while baking. It’s free of eggs and dairy, with gluten and refined sugar free options also included.
Kicking off the weekend with some chocolate cake! And not just any chocolate cake, but chocolate cake with a fudgy chocolate sauce that’s magically made while baking in the oven, no additional cooking required!
While there are tons of recipes out there for this chocolate pudding cake, or hot fudge cake as it’s alternatively called, this recipe is vegan friendly, uses olive oil or coconut oil, and has gluten free/refined sugar free options. It also calls for less sugar than most of the recipes out there.
I made this cake with King Arthur Flour Measure for Measure Gluten-Free Flour and golden coconut sugar. I like golden coconut sugar as it’s a little more mild tasting than regular coconut sugar, but either can be used, as can brown sugar or cane sugar.
This cake can’t be more simple to make. Just place the batter in the pan, top with the sugar/cocoa mixture, then pour the hot coffee/water over top, no stirring needed. The cake bakes up to the top while the chocolate sauce cooks underneath.
It makes the most luscious chocolate cake that pairs perfectly with a scoop of ice cream! Give it a try and leave a comment to let me know what you think! Enjoy!Print
