Hot Fudge Cake
Source of Recipe
One of Brett’s favorite cakes when he was growing up was Chocolate Pudding Cake. It was a box mix his Mom would make which they stopped making. She searched for some time but found this recipe. After trying it, and loving it, she gave me the recipe. It was a hit with Brett too!
