Really good chocolate pudding cake

Nyleve | Oct 10, 2006 05:32 PM

I was thinking I'd like to make a chocolate pudding cake - you know the kind that makes its own chocolate sauce. The recipe I usually use is ok, but I always feel that it's somehow not quite killer enough. It lacks, I don't know, body or something. Anyone have a really outstanding recipe for this? The one I make has an eggless chocolate batter (made with unsweetened cocoa powder) on the bottom, then topped with a dry mixture of cocoa and sugar, and finally water is poured over everything and it's baked - forming a soft chocolate cake on top with a chocolate sauce on the bottom. I'm wondering if there's something missing - additional good chocolate? An egg? Suggestions anyone?
