This is a recipe from my Mother-in-Law who is a fabulous cook – everything she makes is especially delicious. Many years ago she published her own cookbook “Food and Fun” and included this recipe. My husband informed me last night that it is one of his favourite desserts. It’s also very, very easy to make, and a bit unusual. So without further ado – here it is:
Deluxe Chocolate Pudding
In a 2 litre baking dish mix:
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
Make a well and mix in:
1/2 cup milk (I used evaporated milk for extra richness)
1 tsp vanilla
Add and mix:
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Over this mixture (do not mix in) pour combined:
2 cups hot water
4 Tbsp cocoa
3/4 cup brown sugar
Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 -45 minutes – check to make sure the sauce has thickened enough before you call it done. Serve hot with ice cream! Divine!
