Chocolate cake +boiling water = amazing cake.

It does a couple of things. It blooms the cocoa powder flavor. It also cooks the flour similar to what happens in choux paste.
My Mom used to make a brownie pudding cake that required pouring boiling water over it.
Man, it was killer! Hot brownies, crunchy topping, swirling chocolate pudding.
That sounds delicious! Would you mind sharing more info? My residents would love this :)
Here it is!
I thought it came from Mom's old beaten up Betty Crocker cookbook. It's a very Susie Homemaker recipe but scrumptious! Mom always added some chopped toasted walnuts for a little crunch. I might just have to make this tonight.
Serve it hot, but it's good cold too.
There are many good recipes and many better ones around, and now while i rarely make a cake from the old betty crocker cookbook,one thing is certain, they always come out well and never a flop. I prefer Rose Beranbaum's chocolate cake but Betty crocker's is always good and great for a beginner. If i have to teach someone to bake i give them one of those recipes.
And for some things i haven;t found a better.
And for some sort of traditional recipes, like the pudding cake, the 1950s betty crocker cookbook recipe is the standard of comparison. I've made that same pudding cake myself, foodnfoto, and it's really nice. Warm with sweetened whipped cream with some vanilla in it. Yum.
