Pudding Cake

I finally found it--Mom's Pudding Cake Recipe! This is one of Mark's favorites.

1. In an oblong pan, 13x9x2, mix 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup cocoa. Then stir in 2 cups water.

2. Cut 13 marshmallows into quarters and scatter over mixture.

3. Spoon devil's food cake batter over this. Top with 1 cup broken nut meats (Mom would have used walnuts--I prefer pecans). Bake at 350 degrees 45 to 50 minutes. Top with whipped cream or ice cream.

If anyone is interested, I have a recipe similar to this for Hot Fudge Cake which is on the 'heart smart' list, with less than 30% of its calories from fat. I also have a pudding cake recipe made in the crockpot. It's actually quite good.

    Recently, I discovered Your site...I love the recipes! Thank You. I'm planning on making this cake today, please tell me though, does it have the consistency of cake or pudding? I'm hoping cake.

    It has the consistency of a cake, the "pudding" stays on the bottom of the pan. This stuff is SO good with whipped cream or ice cream on top!
