I’ve been making this recipe for years now.  The chocolate cake part of the pudding is not quite like the traditional Victoria sandwich cake.  It’s got a chocolate fudge kind of taste and sticks to your teeth in a yummy way as it’s sort of dry rather than moist but super tasty!!

It’s a really easy recipe and I love to get the kids baking with me on this one.

This chocolate cake pudding is a cross between a cheesecake because of the base and a chocolate cake.  I’m a lover of chocolate and this really hits the spot.  It’s not too sweet and works well as a snack as well as a pudding served with cream or vanilla icecream.
