Microwave Fudge Pudding Cake (Crazy... I know!)

I got this recipe from one of my sister-in-laws cook books. I believe it was a Betty Crocker Dessert cookbook. This is kind of a funky recipe because you microwave it, and it has kind of a different texture, but it is still pretty good. My neighbor gave me some raw chocolate nibs that I ground up and used in this as well. It was kind of fun to try them out, but I think the amount of sugar in this one canceled out any good the "raw chocolate" might be doing. :) Still, fun to try! It is pretty easy because all the magic quite literally happens in one dish- who doesn't like that?

Microwave Fudge Pudding Cake (Better Crocker)
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 T baking cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 T oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 3/4 cups boiling water

1. Mix flour, sugar, 2 T cocoa, the baking powder, and salt in 2 quart microwavable casserole dish.
2. Stir in milk, oil, vanilla. Stir in nuts. Spread evenly in casserole. Mix brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa; sprinkle over batter. Pour boiling water over batter.
3. Microwave uncovered on medium (50%) 9 minutes; rotate casserole 1/2 turn. Microwave uncovered on high 5 to6 minutes or until top is almost dry. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

This looks quite delicious. Do you think wheat flour would work? I'm going to try it--my kids would love the idea of nuking a cake. :)

I remember that! It was really easy, but the texture was not quite the same as a baked cake. Still yummy.
